Save the Curzon Mayfair cinema

curzon_mayfair.jpgUPDATE: In a victorious end to the campaign led by our West End Labour Action Team, the cinema has been saved from the threat of closure.

------

The historic Curzon Mayfair cinema faces closure, after the developers of luxury flats above it have demanded that the cinema - which is a Grade II listed building - pays for the £500k soundproofing now required for those flats.

They know that this cost is unaffordable for Curzon.

As CEO of Curzon World, Philip Knatchbull, told the Evening Standard:

“Were Curzon forced to leave it would not only hurt the independent film community but also deprive  London of a cinema loved for its  heritage and Grade II listed interiors."
