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.

The old Renoir used to be my favourite London cinema but after last evening's experience, I doubt I'll ever go through its doors again.
My friend and I found two show-stopping problems with the new Curzon Bloomsbury. Firstly is the ticket-buying process. With the Bloomsbury, Curzon have now gone down the route of most local Odeons and combined the ticket purchase with the...more
Now called the Curzon Bloomsbury following its make-over, this place is now just another part of the corporate Curzon chain, and an absolute rip-off.

I see that the highest price at the cinema is in fact £18.00! They...more

To be fair, it was very cheap - only £7 for a weekend movie, which I guess makes up for it? The seats...more
I absolutely love this place. It is right around the corner from my place of stay in Bloomsbury, and I couldn't be more happy about it. The indie selection of films is great, and the small, eclectic vibe of the place just adds to the magic.
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!
