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.

Anyone who works in film sees this place as their sprritual home. Anyone who is a real fan of cinema feels the same. I'd do anything to keep it open.
This venue is a huge part of my life. It makes cinema going an absolute pleasure. Currently I am making a documentary about fighting to save the Curzon Soho in it's current awful predicament. I love this place.
Curzon Soho Cinema has had a historic role in the development of arthouse cinema in the UK, and it's to me the flagship of art cinema in London. I value the significance of cinema culture and the role it plays in the identity, politics, society and economy of a country, especially in the UK where the creative and
cultural industries compete with the financial sector.
I can't believe it is under threat. London should learn to better protect historic and cultural spaces, especially from developers.
A great venue. Fantastic films and a great place to hang out too. Their programme of director and cast Q&As is especially strong.
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.
