Curzon’s day job is to provide its loyal customer base with a diverse programme of films and documentaries – and a cool, comfortable environment to watch them in. It also knows how to add cachet to corporate events spanning conferences to networking events. The Hoxton branch will open on 55 Pitfield Street in autumn 2018, complete with three screening rooms. Canapé and cocktail receptions can be arranged before or after the main event.

Curzon Mayfair

Curzon Mayfair

38 Curzon Street, Mayfair, London, W1J 7TY

Curzon Mayfair is regularly used for film premieres, but it’s far more than a hub for screenings: this 1930s Grade II-listed cinema also lends itself to galas, Q&A sessions, conferences and presentations. No question, this is a classy cinema: the largest of its screening rooms has two royal boxes for eight VIPs, and there is a stylish bar for refreshments. Curfew is at midnight, but the cinema’s central Mayfair location offers a wealth of nearby bars and restaurants.

Troxy

Troxy

Curzon Bloomsbury

Curzon Bloomsbury

The Brunswick, Bloomsbury, London, WC1N 1AW

Part of the Brunswick Centre, Curzon Bloomsbury is influenced by the materials and style of post-war modernism, as well as films by Tarkovsky and Greenaway. The minimalist cinema’s four screening rooms are each equipped with Sony 4K projectors, while the Renoir screen features a Dolby Atmos sound system – only the second venue in London to do so. This makes the cinema a popular choice for film screenings, galas and high-end presentations.
