The Curzon – Independent, Unique & Yours
Opening its doors in 1912 with a fundraiser for the relatives of the victims of the Titanic disaster, the Curzon houses a unique collection of cinema equipment as well as a splendid 1930s cinema organ.
As one of the country’s oldest, continuously running cinemas, the grandeur of the classical-style architecture, the particularities of the tin panelling that decorated the interior, and the detail of the striking staircase to the balcony and boxes were a testament to the importance of the building as a venue to see and be seen in.
Alongside our varied film programme, we host live comedy, music and performance and are fully engaged with youth, arts and other organisations, including taking cinema out to residential homes.
Besides our stunning auditorium, the Curzon has a lounge bar, serving drinks and snacks, with public wifi, and workshop and meeting spaces all available for hire.
With support from a dedicated team of volunteers, the Curzon provides a warm welcome for all.
Full listings, tickets and more information are available on our website.
The cinema is currently raising funds to rebuild it’s leaking roof – the target is £100,000. Visit https://www.curzon.org.uk/fundraising/donate/ or our new Facebook @yourcuzoncharity.
