Fairly typical London cinema prices, but with a much better atmosphere than you'll get at any of the usual chains. It's worth coming for a drink before your movie (or staying for one afterwards!) and fully enjoying this lovely complex which situated down through several floors and with bars and cafés enough for everyone. The best and worst thing about... More

A nice place to go and see some great independent films. There is no ticket desk, so you can purchase (or collect if you have booked online) your ticket at any till. I went in the mid-afternoon, and it wasn't to busy so this was not a problem. There are several places to sit and enjoy a drink, which is... More

Having come here a few times to watch some great Indie Movies, I always prefer these Cinemas compared to the big chains as the services seem so much more personable and the food and drink are not over the odds for the quality.

We went to see Leviathan, brilliant film...but. 1. no sign-posting of where to buy cinema tickets. 2. Had to queue for 10 minutes behind people ordering drinks, very annoying. 3. Then bought popcorn, even that was poor. 4. Got to the Theatre entrance nobody to take our tickets, some guy had to call someone to attend. 5. The theatre temperature... More

The mid level foyer used to be so comfortable... It's had a redesign and not a good one. Gone are the comfy sofas, now you have hard laminate chairs, with barely upholstered bench seats on some walls... And the music was so loud you could not hear yourself speak... Please tell me you haven't done the same to Curzon Mayfair

Once one of my favourite places in London, now, since the makeover, no desire to return. No ticket office, join the queue at the bar for tickets, popcorn, benugo fudge fingers and head down into, err, pretty much the same experience but gloomier. You can understand why to some extent the management wanted to discourage people hanging out for wireless... More

After closing down the Curzon Soho cafe and lounge for a few weeks earlier this year, the staff and Curzon members anticipated a new comfy, tactile setting with carpets, sofas, armchairs and plenty of atmosphere. Instead, we got bare hard floors and plastic tables and chairs by Argos. Did the executives spend the interior design fund on a lush weekend... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
