The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Ticket system failed. Phoned Curzon. Not answered for 20 minutes.
Jun 2021
I bought tickets for Nomadland online today. The booking system failed to confirm, despite me 'trying again' for 17 minutes. Phoned the Curzon Bloomsbury number, which turns out to be in Ashford,Kent, presumably a call centre. The phone was not answered for 20 minutes. At £36 for a pair of tickets Curzon can afford to at least have someone answer the phone.
This would be my first cinema visit for 18 months. Puts me off going back, especially to Curzon

Rude prejudiced waitress with bad customer service!
Nov 2019 • Friends
I attended the Curzon Cinema, Bloomsbury yesterday to view ‘The Irishman’ and all I can say is it wasn’t a very pleasant experience.

My friends and I arrived a little late, missing the adverts as one of my friends is unwell (her mobility is currently impaired and hence why we felt a night out to the cinema would be a fun thing to do). On arrival we proceeded to try and purchase snacks promptly having already bought our tickets online.

I was about to proceed to the screening room with our friend who’s mobility is currently impaired whilst my other friend waited for our hot drinks being served by a waiter whilst I took down the cold ones. Amongst our purchases was a fizzy drink that needed to be opened with a drink opener, realising it hadn’t been opened I turned back and asked a passing waitress is she could please open it to which I got the curt response “HAVE YOU PAID FOR IT?”.

My response was “of course I have, how would I have got hold of one of your bottled drinks from behind the counter without it being paid for?”. She then had the cheek to call me rude “I replied no you are rude and ridiculous to ask such a stupid question!”. I am a middle aged Londoner of colour and I have luckily never been exposed to such blatant prejudice and assumption that I had just decided to take a drink from behind a counter and ask for it to be opened without having paid for it!

I was in shock! My friends were in shock! Her colleague apologised on her behalf and she had the cheek to call me rude and continue arguing her case! I walked away due to the need to get to the screening room and to assist my friend.

I shall be sticking to the Everyman Cinema and Firmdale film club I usually attend due to the prejudiced, unapologetic bad customer service I received at the Curzon Bloomsbury.

Not so much ‘Luminaire’ as ‘RyanAir’
Oct 2019 • Couples
Sub-Ryanair legroom made for very uncomfortable viewing. £34 for a ‘double seat’, which actually meant being boxed in in a corner. The opppsite of the luxury you’d expect for that price. At least we could have ended up in Amsterdam for that cost. Crap. Won’t rush back.

Good cinema
Sep 2019 • Couples
Curzon Bloomsbury situated beside Bloomsbury Square is a very good local resource with its multiple film screens showing a mix of film on general release and limited release, also pleasant meeting lounges. Very good beverages and snacks (good cakes etc.) are available.

Lost our tickets but Tom (Manager) saved the day!

Tom the Manager went out of his way to help find our paid for tickets on their system after we'd driven from Hertfordshire to see the streamed Lehman Trilogy. Thanks Tom.

Another Disappointing Visit
May 2019 • Friends
Ten years or so ago and much further back, this was a wonderful cinema. It still seems seems strange to me that the Curzon group managed to transform the original Renoir into this poor and gloomy affair. The Soho and Aldgate cinemas (which I prefer to use) are excellent by comparison but the Bloomsbury screens/auditoriums, are so utterly wrong.

And so it proved once again, when we visited last week because the film I wanted to see wasn't on anywhere else at the desired time. Arriving wet from the rain, I think we ended up in the minute Renoir (one of four screens I believe) but all of which are pretty small if I remember correctly. Nowerere, to put bags and coats, not even under the seats, which meant that eveybody was crammed in and slowly steaming themselves dry. The seats are so tight and with little leg space, that a sufferer of osteoarthritis, such as myself, is effectively left with compromised and aching joints for the rest of the day.

The general bar/lounge facilities are fine but personally, I think this has to be the last time that I visit, ending a near 40-year association.

My favourite cinema
Dec 2018 • Friends
Arrived early at cinema & ordered a coffee to be advised my membership had run out. After discussing terms I paid £55 renewal. The nice chap then cancelled my online tickets & issued two of the four free allocations on renewed membership-£28, deduct from the £55... and discount on coffee! A no-brainer!
The cinema is bright, comfortable & has great snacks (dips, healthy options, classy drinks). Even outside seating weather permitting. Facilities excellent: loos, lift, literature, furniture.. over three levels.
And of course cinemas & film choices top notch.
Worth booking in advances as even the most obscure sell out fast.
One of my most favourite experiences is the eats are not noisy & fellow guests all seem very respectful during shows (not nattering incessantly!)
Staff charming and helpful. Area interesting... plan time for a wander around Marchmont Street or Coral Fields.
A lovely outing whether 11 am or evening.

Great little cinema worth paying the extra for, comfy recliner seats. Great sound. Often I find cinemas cold but this was just right.

Great little cinema with class and great offer
Oct 2018 • Solo
I really had a great experience in Renoir/Curzon Bloomsbury. I love how no one eats popcorn and the environment is rustle free. It gives you great vibes. I know it is pricey, but you know what you pay for... also, I was lucky to have a day off and the cinema was filled with baby boomers ;)

The Plaza screen is tiny (25 seats), but it is perfect and I really enjoyed Cold War this afternoon.

Too pricey
Oct 2018 • Solo
Rather than get a Netflix subscription to watch this particular film I decided to see the film here.An oap on a Sunday morning they charged £14.This just to sit in an underground sub basement.Yes the seats were comfy.The programme didn't start at 11 i went to complain.I was told that this was because there were no ads.
This company are taking over a local cinema and if they inflict similar prices on it I won't be back.
