A popular member of the Curzon family. This intimate five-screen cinema is located on the eastside of the Brunswick Centre, where there are a variety of shops and restaurants to satisfy you before settling into a film. Curzon Bloomsbury is also home to Bertha Dochouse – the UK's first dedicated documentary theatre.

- The first – maybe the only? – thing you should know about ‘In Fabric’ going in is that it’s about a killer dress. Not killer as in fashionable or a knockout; it’s actually a garish neon-red distraction that looks like it was designed by a fire ins...Read more
- If cinema reflects life back at us, there’s been a bit of a smudge on the lens as far as IVF is concerned. Millions of people have gone through it, yet the movie cupboard is oddly bare. Maybe that’s changing, with last year’s ace Netflix movie ‘Pr...Read more
- Not to be excessively literal about that title, but when a movie – even one about Hitler Youth – is as saturated with visual gorgeousness as ‘Never Look Away’ (the Oscar-nominated cinematography is by ‘The Natural’s Caleb Deschanel), you can’t loo...Read more

The films being shown at this cinema are carefully curated. I chose to go there because this Curzon was the only place showing the one I wanted to see (a Werner Herzog documentary) at a conveninent time. The ticket prices are also reasonable.
However, the cinema's space is very confusing. Long corridors along two subterranean floors, with minimal information as to where each one leads makes the experience very claustrophobic. From what I understood the many screens in the cinema are divided into groups and named after people rather than just being numbered. To me the space could be less pretentious and have more practicality.
Still I really recommend this cinema because of the interesting selection of films on show.
