The Knutsford cinema was originally christened the Marcliff Cinema, after the founder, Clifford and his wife, Margery, in 1937. Clifford also had a cinema called the Barcliff, named after his daughter, Barbara.

The cinema then passed into the hands of Knutsford Town Council and subsequently Macclesfield Borough Council in 1974, then Cheshire East Council in 2009.

The auditorium originally housed 600 seats but a 1990 refurbishment reduced the number to 172 seats, emphasising the use of the building as a community space.

The original art-deco proscenium arch of the cinema is still in situ.

The cinema reopened as a Curzon on 11 January 2013 with screenings of Tom Hooper's Les Miserables. In 2014, Curzon Knutsford screened the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch only a few yards away from the court in which Turing was tried in 1952.


The cinema and bar areas are ideal for reception drinks and networking events.  The screening room seats 178, and is the perfect place for your film screening, AGM, or conference. 

This lovely room, which still contains the proscenium arch and curtains from its earlier days as the screening room, is suitable for wedding receptions, birthday celebrations, and presentation dinners. It is also suitable for use for additional conference and meeting space.

This simple room which can seat up to 60 theatre style, provides yet more space in this incredible venue and can be used on its own or in conjunction with the hire of other spaces.

* Both the Cranford Suite and the Tatton Room have access to a kitchen.
