I've experienced better, for sure - but I tend to frequent theatres like the Everyman chain, which are very comfortable and have unique food offerings. Curzon is unique in the sense that it has a bar, but it's just got ice cream and bagged popcorn/crisps to eat, and the screen is very small.

Cute and convenient cinema with retro character in the middle of Bloomsbury.

The cinema has two screens that are rather small in comparison to newer, chain cinemas. The bar downstairs offers a welcome respite to cinema goers, especially on the weekends. The bar also offers organic, health-conscious, and off-beat food options, from dried fruit to slices of chocolate cake.

While the cinema...more
