The Richmond Cinema Heritage

The most petite member of our family of cinemas is also the one whose roots extend the furthest back built as it was on the site of a larger cinema originally called the New Royalty Kinema. Opened in December 1914, it was operated by the Joseph Mears chain, and the frontage and foyer of the building was originally an 18th-century Georgian town house, with the cinema auditorium built at the rear. The Listed 18th-century facade and former foyer were retained and are now in use as offices and a restaurant, and can still be seen on Hill Street.

Set along the banks of the Thames away from the bustle of the high street, Curzon Richmond is a dearly loved neighbourhood cinema which quietly competes with local multiplexes by showing the best in world and independent cinema.

Screen Capacity & Access:

144 seats, 2 of which removable for 1 wheelchair space (rear of auditorium). Hearing loop facilities.
