Soho

Arthouse film fans have been known to go weak at the knees at the mention of the Soho Curzon, which has some of the best programming in London – a mix of arty new releases and documentaries, often introduced by the filmmakers themselves. Watching a film at the Curzon always feels special, surrounded by film lovers without it being pretentious. The coffee is good, the bar relaxed, and if you’re watching a British film, you’ll likely be seeing the finished product a stone’s throw from where it was edited in Soho. Perfect for whiling away a rainy afternoon.

    The full picture emerges slowly in ‘Room’, Lenny Abrahamson’s powerful, sensitive survival drama. Details arrive like the droplets of rain that fall on the skylight of the shed in which a mother and child are locked. But it’s clear from the start ...

    The ring of truth sounds quietly, and sometimes not at all, in Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth', the Italian auteur's occasionally dazzling but low-key and rambling follow-up to 2013's 'The Great Beauty'. It's his second English-language film after 2009...

    After the playful, urban and contemporary humour of the Oscar-winning ‘Birdman’, this bleak-faced 1820s-set frontier western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like ‘Babel’ and ‘2...

    ‘This is Boston,’ says Stanley Tucci’s seen-it-all victims’ lawyer to a reporter in ‘Spotlight’, echoing that famous last line in ‘Chinatown’: ‘Forget it, Jake, it’s Chinatown’. But forgetting isn’t an option sometimes: ‘Spotlight’ calmly and powe...

I love every floor of the Curzon, from the cafe selling delicious red velvet to the bar and popcorn floor and, of course, the screens. You can tuck away in a corner and have a quick drink with your fancy man before hot footing it to watch the latest independent and international films. If you're into film then this is definitely the spot for you.

The film programming at this exquisite cinema in the heart of Soho is flawless. It's an effortlessly cool venue with wonderful food and drink and a gorgeously geeky, too-cool-for-school staff who genuinely love film. It's a cinephile's dream.

Probably my favourite cinema in central London. Film-going aside the bar is a good spot for a date!
