CURZON OXFORD OPENS FRIDAY 1 DECEMBER
Curzon comes to the City of Dreaming Spires with a beautifully designed cinema set over two floors incorporating five screens, a cafe-bar with a light bites menu and pizza, as well as a night-time bar with lounge areas to enjoy a drink before and after your film.
We will offer the finest cinematic experience in Oxford with spacious, comfortable screens showing the latest in Hollywood entertainment mixed with independent and international films, live opera, ballet and theatre, and a selection of events - from DJ nights in the bar to Q&As and panel discussions in the screens.
Alongside the latest digital technology, the new cinema will even have one 35mm projector, so you can experience the arresting beauty and pure magic of analogue film - flicker, whirr and all.
There will also be a designated Virtual Reality area, so you can participate in a totally immersive experience.
Curzon Oxford is part of the Westgate Shopping Complex and will open on Friday 1 DECEMBER 2017.
Just a small note
We know you must be curious (and curiouser) to enter the wonderland of our stunning new cinema, and we're incredibly excited to be opening in magical Oxford.
Unfortunately we're running a bit late for our very important date - oh dear! We were due to open on Friday 17 November, but we've still got some minor works to do until we're ready to open the doors (plumping up the cushions, polishing the silverware, painting the roses red sort-of-thing).
But before the Queen of Hearts screams 'off with their heads!' we've got some good news too: we will be having a soft launch from Monday 27 November, and we can now confirm that the cinema will be in full swing from Friday 1 December.
We really appreciate your support and your patience - we cannot wait to welcome you to a fantastic cinema experience.

Westgate Shopping Centre
Oxford has an excellent Park & Ride system. There are five Park and Ride sites around the city on Oxford's ring road and all are clearly signposted helping to remove the need for commuter and visitor traffic to enter the City Centre thus reducing City Centre congestion. The five sites comprise: Water Eaton and Pear Tree to the north, Thornhill to the east, Redbridge to the south and Seacourt to the west. Journey times to the City Centre in the AM peak vary between 10 minutes and 15 minutes. Each has regular bus services to the City Centre.
The Westgate Multi-Storey Car Park is currently closed to make way for the new Westgate Oxford retail development. There is a temporary car park at Oxpens which is now open, to find the car park using SAT NAV, use the postcode OX1 1RQ . The car park is owned and operated by the City Council.
There are two car clubs that operate in the area, Zipcar and Co-wheels.
