Soho is under threat. Only a hero can save it.
Curzon Soho, one of London’s flagship arthouse cinemas, has been declared a "surface area of interest" by Transport for London and could be knocked down to make way for the Crossrail 2 development.
Once named the best cinema in London by readers of Time Out, this iconic venue was built in 1912 to replace the bombed-out Shaftesbury Pavilion and has seen it all: from premieres of classics like Stanley Kubrick's Lolita, to Q&As with Werner Herzog, Agnes Varda, Juliette Binoche, and recently Steve McQueen and Ryan Gosling.
Curzon Soho is a important part of London's cultural landscape. Not only do its three screens show the best films arthouse, independent and world cinema have to offer, but also its cafe is a vibrant creative hub where filmmakers and cinephiles, critics and writers, artists and actors congregate daily to work on their projects.
Help us show Transport for London how important it is to keep this iconic venue on Shaftesbury Avenue open by signing the petition on 38 Degrees.
