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

The Curzon Soho used to be a favoured haunt of mine. Even when it wasn't to meet up for a film I would pop in there for a coffee and a cake or a lounge on one of the sofas to chill and read a book when I had an hour to kill in the West End. Alas, all that... More

We went here to experience watching a film in London. Additionally, since it was one of the attractions that are open late at night with a London pass. We watched an Italian film, but unfortunately, because we couldn't understand the language, I slept through some parts of the movie (but it was subtitled). The place is cozy and and a... More

Went to see this French film, which was brilliantly played out and left me wanting to know what happened! Although the sex scenes were explicit, it fitted the storyline. Although why anyone would want to sunbathe on a stoney beach with strong winds is beyond me! Well acted and atmospheric. Before the cinema went for tea and cake in the... More

It's a great cinema but the sound quality was badly balanced - really tinny/thin sound with a piercing volume. Surprising for this place.

We went to the movies a couple of times while in London, both times here at the Curzon Soho which was close to Chinatown and our hotel. They have three theatres, one large and two smaller, depending on popularity of screening and if you have a London Pass, the tickets are free!
