European Art Cinema Day

European Art Cinema Day banner

Sunday 15th October is EUROPEAN ART CINEMA DAY! CICAE and Europa Cinemas have brought together more than 500 cinemas across Europe to present a curated programme celebrating arthouse cinema and European film.

We're proud to participate in this pan-European initiative with four special screenings: a very early preview of Ruben Östlund's The Square (Sweden), a Members' preview of François Ozon's L'Amant double (France), screenings of Loving Vincent (a UK-Poland co-production) and The Party (UK).

L'amant double

Curzon Members can book for this special preview of prolific French auteur François Ozon's much anticipated next feature.

Combining elements of Alfred Hitchcock and Brian de Palma, this is a sleek, sexy, irreverent and yet tense thriller.

Loving Vincent

You may think you know the story of Vincent van Gogh's life but you've never seen it like this. An unprecedented achievement in filmmaking, Loving Vincent is the world's first fully painted feature film, with each frame hand-painted by a vast team of artists.

The last week of his life and the circumstances of Van Gogh's death are explored, with each moment brought to life though this unique painted style.



The Party

The Party

Veteran of UK arthouse cinema Sally Potter releases her first film since 2012's Ginger & Rosa, a monochrome comedy drama centering around a suburban party to celebrate a ministerial appointment to the shadow cabinet.

With a cast all directors must dream to work with including Kristen Scott Thomas, Tim Spall, Patricia Clarkson and Cillian Murphy, this witty, sharp and very funny new comedy is not to be missed.



The Square

The Square

For the second preview feature of the day, we've only blown the bloody Palme d'Ors off!

Ruben Östlund's The Square is a knife-sharp satire on art, culture and communication in the digital age and won the coveted top prize at 2017's Cannes Film Festival.

Garnering acclaim for his previous feature Force Majeure and the most dazzling prize in European cinema to his name, Östlund is emerging as an essential voice in comtemporary Swedish film.
