Curzon Mayfair

The Curzon Mayfair is the only cinema where Time Out has ever been told off by a fellow moviegoer for eating popcorn too loudly. Which just goes to show what a classy venue this grade II listed cinema is. The bigger of its two screens is a beauty – a 311-seater still in possession of its two original Royal Boxes. The smaller screen is a snug 83-seater. The programme is as brilliant as you'd expect from the Curzon group, a mix of arthouse films, live events and docs, while the bar is suitably stocked with fancy snacks and wines.

      You might already know how the evacuation of Dunkirk in May 1940 turned out: how over 300,000 mainly British troops escaped from the beach and harbour of a northern French port while being bombarded by the Nazis. But the power of Christopher Nolan...

      Al Gore cuts an unusually isolated figure – shot from behind, head bowed in thought – in the documentary 'An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power'. For all the dire environmental warnings in Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s serviceable follow-up to Davi...

      Geoffrey Rush shines in this elegant drama about the artist Alberto Giacometti, which bypasses the usual dullness of artist biopics by zeroing in on a week or so in 1964. Based on real events, it’s the story of how Giacometti, then 63, invited a y...

      Racing docs are still big business in the wake of ‘Senna’, but this is the first to focus not on a driver, but on the head of a Formula One team. Frank Williams is a fascinating case: born into a family of relatively modest means, he developed an ...

        Over her last three features – ‘The Hurt Locker’, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and now the electrifying ‘Detroit’ – Kathryn Bigelow has become America’s most accomplished director of war movies. They’re not the glacially styled, ultra-heroic combat epics th...

      Gorgeous botique cinema in the heart of London. The seats are comfortable and can be enhanced by your choice of your alcoholic beverage.

      Convenience and opulence don't come cheap though and with 3 tickets costing the best part of £50 make sure the film is worth seeing.


      Beautiful boutique cinema in the heart of Mayfair. Decent bar and lovely staff (particularly lovely when you drop your full bag of popcorn and they let you have a replacement one).

      Lovely cinema just around the corner from the shops and restaurants of pretty Shepherd Market. The main screen is beautiful and quite unusual - it has a space-ship like, modernist ceiling and strange ornate wall decorations. The bar is also quite charming - dark decor, leather seats. Nice chilled atmosphere.
