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.

London is huge, and the theaters are many, but sometimes Renoir may be the only theater playing a certain film you want to see. There is something to be said for filling a niche market.

I prefer to spend my movie-going pounds on independent and small chains over Vues & Odeons whenever possible, and this was a cute little place to do so. It's situated in the Brunswick centre so you have the massive Waitrose to provide some pre-cinema munchies and there's lots of restaurants around to grab something to eat before or after your show.
