Curzon Cinema & Arts

The Curzon – Independent, Unique & Yours

Opening its doors in 1912, only 5 days after the Titanic disaster, the Curzon is one of the country’s oldest, continuously running cinemas. Enlarged in the 1920s, the neo-classical building houses a 320-seater auditorium (in normal times), panelled in a rare example of pressed tin; a comfortable lounge bar; a 1930s Christie pipe organ and a unique collection of cinema equipment.

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. 

We are supported by a fantastic team of volunteers, who look after our customers, help in the bar, give guided tours and help to maintain our lovely building. Click here you’re interested in finding out about volunteering at the Curzon.

Bring Back the Balcony

The cinema is currently raising funds to re-open it’s stunning balcony. This will increase our seating capacity, creating a far more sustainable future for our business in these uncertain times. If you would like to find out about making a donation go to
