Tucked away in the City, this latest addition to the Curzon boutique cinema chain is a sleek four-screener. Cinemagoers can sip cocktails in the mid-century-chic bar before heading to one of the neat and understated screening rooms and kicking back in a mustard-yellow reclining seat. It’s a little bit ‘Mad Men’ and we love it.

    As unicorn-rare as studio political comedies are, it’s tempting to give the aptly titled Long Shot a pass, until you realize it’s not saying much of anything. The setup has a topicality that already feels a few years outdated: Bob Odenkirk plays...

    it feels superficial to compare ‘Beats’ to ‘Trainspotting’: it’s Scottish, it’s the mid-’90s, it’s young tearaways, it’s drugs. But it’s the sensory impact too – ‘Beats’ bottles a very similar brand of lightning to Danny Boyle’s film, consistently...

Brilliant little cinema with comfy couches, footstools and the option to book single seats or couches. I chanced my luck booking one side of a two-seater sofa in the hopes i'd hit the jackpot and get the whole couch to myself. As this was for the new Avengers Infinity film, it was always destined to be a pipe dream but honestly, apart from my couch partner jigging his leg a little at times, I hardly noticed I was sharing a seat with a stranger. 


Curzon offers the modern middle class joy of cinema + bar which I still find I haven't quite wrapped my head around and always curse my lack of preparation and opportunity when I glance with envy-filled eyes at seasoned cinema wine-swiggers.


Though I didn't personally sample the food, I was impressed by the spread available. The couple on my left had what seemed to be a pate and preserves type platter, hot dog and decent-quality pizza. Food smelt pretty incredible and surely pricey, seemed to be worth it.


The toilets also deserve a mention here, really modernly designed and decorated with gorgeous smelling liquid soap and the type of industrial hand dryers required for 'can't-miss-the-movie' moments.


Great cinema, great location, will be back... and will have a wine this time!

A great addition to the Aldgate area, Curzon brings along a charming, elegant and relaxed vibe to the cinema experience. As with other Curzon venues in London, the Aldgate branch has a very nice bar offering tasty snacks and drinks to enjoy before or during films. It also features smaller cinema halls which add to the ‘living room’ feeling, while still providing something you cannot really experience on your smart TV at home. A night out to Curzon can be an outing in itself, with drinks, dinner and entertainment included. Overall, a great pick for a chilled out Friday night or Sunday evening.

Awesome addition to the area. Nice little bar which does a wicked old fashioned (which of course you can bring into the theater area). We sat in the normal seating area, and the seats were super comfy! The foot stools on our row seemed to be sparse but honestly we had so much leg room they were really not needed.

New cinema in Aldgate from the Curzon branch and what a cinema! We picked a double seat in Screen 4, some kind of super comfy couch for 2, for the same price as a normal seat. The screen was big, the sound just loud enough and the cinema on its own is really lovely. Only downside, we got there as they still had their opening promotion (£10 for a ticket) but it will increase in March to £15 a ticket, which is definitely pricey for the area.
