The Renoir Cinema in Bloomsbury went through a comprehensive expansion and upgrade in 2014 thanks to investment by Curzon Cinemas.
Now named the Curzon Bloomsbury, the arthouse cinema retains many of its original features while now having six screens and an increased capacity of 320. The Bertha DocHouse Documentary Centre has also been added, which exclusively screens documentaries. The cinema continues to host master classes, seasons and unique film strands.

Never having visited the old site I can't compare. It may be frustrating to buy tickets from the bar, but I've noticed a lot of cinemas have gone the same way. They could do with a ticketing machine but you can buy tickets online including on your phone and you don't need to collect them.

My only complaint is that films are expensive to see. But that goes for every movie theatre, so the Renoir shouldn't bear the brunt of my constant gripe....more
This small cinema has an ecelectic collection of films. From big blockbuster to indie French films, you will find something you will enjoy. They even broadcast live from the MET sometimes!
Very hot in the summer, and can cost you almost 20 quid including a ticket and something from the bar.more
