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!

We were in Screen 2 to see Wadjda (highly recommended). The cinema has a good selection of foreign/arthouse films. I think some are also available on demand, but I haven't looked into that yet. As the previous reviewer has said, it is a little cold, but it's not too bad; certainly, my local cinema is much colder. The seats are... More

good film, but regardless the Soho Curzon is a gem of a find. It is a little more chilled than the cinemas of nearby Leicester Square and has a slightly quirky edge. Plus the seats are so comfortable, they are not like cinema seats at all.

A great cinema for grown ups! There is a cafe on the ground floor serving lovely cakes and light lunches with drinks, and 2 further bars for relaxing before or after the film.

All the Curzon chain of cinemas are excellent, but this and Mayfair (Curzon Street) are to my mind the best. The Soho cinema is well-appointed with one large and one small bar; a coffee shop at street level and really comfortable screens showing great films. Don't miss the 'Q & A' sessions that follow some films - they are always... More

Saw the "Flemish / Belgian" Bullhead here last night, film excellent. Venue very good, cafe for a bite to eat and a decent coffee on street level, 2 bars underneath- plenty of seating and space. Well laid out venue. Superb staff too, friendly and dedicated to the cinema, it seemed to me. All in all a great place to catch... More
