Curzon Cinema Clevedon

Curzon Cinema Clevedon

The Curzon Community Cinema in Clevedon is one of the oldest continually running cinemas in the world. It was opened in April 1912 and has operated continually to the present day. The first show raised funds for the survivors and relatives of those killed on the Titanic. The cinema was substantially remodelled in 1922, and damage from an enemy bomb in 1941 can still be seen in the fabric of the building. The cinema is Grade II listed.

The existing roof needs urgent repair and recovering and DHV Architects are leading the project team. Planning consent has been granted and work is due to start on site in Spring 2020, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The cinema team have been running an inspirational fundraising campaign which can be followed at www.curzon.org.uk/fundraising/
