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.
