Curzon Camden: brand-new cinema now open in Hawley Wharf

Enjoy all the latest film releases at the independent-cinema chain’s luxurious canalside outpost in NW1

Home to bustling restaurants and independent shops, Hawley Wharf has now welcomed the brand-new cinema Curzon Camden to its dynamic bankside development.

The eye-catching, pink-hued venue is located just off Camden High Street, but also, for Kentish Town locals, easily accessed from Castlehaven Road. Tucked under the borough’s historic railway arches, it comprises five beautifully appointed screens, each of which accommodates 30 guests to ensure an intimate, luxurious and, above all, entirely memorable filmgoing experience.

“We are thrilled to be launching our latest landmark cinema,” says Curzon’s CEO Philip Knatchbull.

“With its incredible and eclectic mix of food, retail and leisure outlets, Hawley Wharf is a natural home for us, and we’re delighted to be a part of this amazing location on Regent’s Canal.”

In line with the chain’s thriving portfolio of London cinemas, whose flagship venues are in Mayfair, Soho and Bloomsbury, Curzon Camden will specialise in independent and arthouse films, while also programming all the biggest blockbusters.

Currently showing at Curzon Camden are the Oscar-tipped Princess Diana biopic Spencer, the MCU superhero extravaganza Eternals and the Sixties-set psychological thriller Last Night in Soho, among other titles.

Later this year, visitors can expect the Lady Gaga true-crime epic House of Gucci, Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story remake and the Joaquin Phoenix family drama C’mon C’mon.

In addition to the cinema, Curzon Camden boasts a sophisticated, New York-style bar, where you can unwind in a relaxing atmosphere of plush interiors and soft lighting. On offer there is a tempting selection of wines, beers, cocktails and soft drinks, alongside an all-day pizza menu, with toppings including caramelised onion, Ventricina salami and goat’s cheese.

With its expertly curated programming and stylish decor, Curzon Camden is set to bring a more prestigious cinema flavour to North London.
