Curzon Mayfair

The Curzon Mayfair is the only cinema where Time Out has ever been told off by a fellow moviegoer for eating popcorn too loudly. Which just goes to show what a classy venue this grade II listed cinema is. The bigger of its two screens is a beauty – a 311-seater still in possession of its two original Royal Boxes. The smaller screen is a snug 83-seater. The programme is as brilliant as you'd expect from the Curzon group, a mix of arthouse films, live events and docs, while the bar is suitably stocked with fancy snacks and wines.

    This super-creepy but also super-accomplished early-’80s-set Argentinian film is unlikely to screen anywhere next Father’s Day, unless as a sick joke. There are scary dads, and then there’s Arquímedes Puccio (Guillermo Francella, a terrifying dead...

    This delightful film from French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (‘Eden’, ‘Goodbye First Love’) is her first built around a genuine star. Isabelle Huppert gives a typically intelligent and low-key performance as Nathalie, a Parisian philosophy teacher a...

    The kingdom in question, of course, is not the one within the British Isles, but Botswana – or Bechuanaland, as it was known in the post-war years when crown prince Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) came to London to study, and fell unexpectedly in lo...

    We’d do anything for our kids, wouldn’t we? Romanian director Cristian Mungiu (‘4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days’) understands that, he gets it. But with this bruising, powerful drama he also asks the question: what if the broken social, political and...

    After the campy in-flight antics of ‘I’m So Excited’ and the creepy shivers of ‘The Skin I Live In’, Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is back on familiar ground with ‘Julieta’. A sombre, ravishing study of grief, guilt and burden, you could in al...

Lovely cinema just around the corner from the shops and restaurants of pretty Shepherd Market. The main screen is beautiful and quite unusual - it has a space-ship like, modernist ceiling and strange ornate wall decorations. The bar is also quite charming - dark decor, leather seats. Nice chilled atmosphere.
