    There was already something wonderfully weird and carnivalesque about Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone's past films about the Naples mafiosi ('Gomorrah') and our modern yearning for celebrity ('Reality'). Now, the director has let his circus ringm...

    Meryl Streep continues her screw-the-Oscars, life-affirming run of movies with this ridiculously watchable comedy, playing filthy rich socialite Florence Foster Jenkins. In the 1930s, the deluded diva sang at private recitals in New York, warbling...

    The voice of arty New York downtown cool, artist Laurie Anderson is on thoughtful form for her first feature film in nearly three decades. On the surface, though, she’s made the most uncool thing imaginable: a movie about her dog, an adventurous r...

    Sorry, Taylor Swift, but #girlsquad of the year goes to the five sisters in Turkish director Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s brilliant debut drama. ‘Mustang’ feels unlike anything you’ve seen before; it’s like a cross between a prison-break movie, an arthou...

    Land Art was an attempt to break out of the gallery and engage directly with the landscape, creating work that couldn’t be bought, sold or commodified. It was as American as a military-industrial apple pie: a bastardised frontier mentality mixed u...

A beautiful cozy art house cinema, with reclining comfortable seats, a lovely bar and funky toilets.  Just a few minutes walk from Russell Square Tube Station and set in the Brunswick Centre, surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants. A great escape from generic cinema chains and the hustle and bustle of Central London.

What a wonderful cinema! The screens are huge, with only about 6 rows of seating so you're never too far from the screen. The chairs are wonderfully comfortable, with a reclining function. You can also get double seats which let you relax with your other half without an annoying armrest in the way. Tickets are a bit pricey but reasonable for the experience you get - no sticky floors, stunted view or tiny screen. Great for those occasional movies that you are really excited to see!

I very rarely go to arthouse cinemas but when I do, I remember how lovely they are. This Curzon is no exception. The Phoenix screen (where I watched an animated movie tonight) was compact to say the least. Only 28 seats for the whole cinema but, to be honest, the intimacy was fitting for the movie. The seats are remarkably comfortable and have a slight recline function. This can be a bit frustrating when you start to really relax into the chair and eventual notice that you're at a 45 degree angle and have to readjust. 


The popcorn was great and they serve a decent menu of drinks. Ticket prices are a little steep but not remarkably expensive compared to larger chains and drinks and snacks for four (including two alcoholic drinks) was £20.


All in all, a great trip to the cinema. I would definitely recommend visiting but possibly not for an action or blockbuster film.
