Close Curzon Soho. "What f***er said that???"

Unbelievable, right? We may lose our decades-old beacon of independent, arthouse and world cinema, our crossroads of creativity, our maker of movie magic. Curzon Soho has been declared a 'surface of interest' in the plans to build London's newest high speed railway.

We tried to be polite but the developers wouldn't listen. Now we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore! Armed with a bunch of staff and cinema lovers who care for Curzon Soho, we are sending a message out to the developers that we won't go down without a fight. 

Watch the film and sign the petition to Save Curzon Soho now.

(***Warning: language is NSFW, so put your headphones on***)

Now's your time to get angry! We want to see your best film-inspired swearing. Join the campaign and send us your video response using #CurseforCurzon #SaveCurzonSoho. 

A bleeped version of Curse for Curzon will play at Curzon Soho before films from January 8.

About Curse for Curzon

Curse for Curzon was devised, directed by Ed Edwards and produced by Sam Edwards through their production company Ragged Crow.

Curse for Curzon was the winner of a competition run by Curzon with Shooting People, in which we asked filmmakers to submit a treatment for a short film to launch our campaign to save the cinema.
