The Curzon cinema has been at the centre of life in Clevedon, North Somerset, since 1912.

An independent, traditionally run cinema showing mainstream and art house films, it is one of the country’s oldest, continually running cinemas.

Besides our stunning auditorium, the Curzon has a lounge bar, serving drinks and snacks, with public wifi, and workshop and meeting spaces all available for hire.

Alongside our film programme, we host live comedy, music and performance and are fully engaged with youth, arts and other organisations, including taking cinema out to residential homes.

Inside a little-changed building, the cinema can boast the world’s longest run of skelionite (1920s tin paneling) and a unique collection of historic film equipment, offering heritage value, locally, nationally and internationally.

With support from a dedicated team of volunteers, the Curzon provides a warm welcome for all.
