Curzon Cinemas (//) are a chain of cinemas based in the United Kingdom, mostly in London, specialising in art house films. They also have a video on demand service, Curzon Home Cinema.
Curzon Cinemas were established in 1934 when Harold Wingate, who imported unknown films during the post World War I period, opened the first cinema in Mayfair. The second location, Curzon Bloomsbury, opened in 1972. In 1976 Curzon Artificial Eye, the film distribution company was launched.
On 23 December 2019, American-based Cohen Media Group acquired Curzon Cinemas, including Curzon Artificial Eye.
In March 2020, Curzon Cinemas and all other public cinemas in the UK closed until summer 2020 due to a national lockdown in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Curzon Cinemas currently have 17 cinema complexes throughout the United Kingdom.
