About Curzon Ripon

Curzon Ripon brings cinema back to Ripon 31 years after its last Picturehouse closed. The building on North Street was a furniture store for many years but had been closed for several years before the owners made the decision to convert it to a cinema.

The city, which once had three cinemas, saw its last one, the Palladium, in Kirkgate, close its doors in 1982, after showing films for 66 years. The last film to be screened was Clint Eastwood's Firefox.

Opening times

The cinema opens 15 minutes before the first film of the day and closes 15 minutes after the start time of the last film of the day. Typically this will be approximately 12.00pm - 9:15pm and 10.15am-9.15pm on Saturdays however check listings for accurate information.
