Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Top notch from start to finish. I cannot improve on this luxury movie experience. It leaves the iPic’s, Gold Class and others in the dust.

    Brilliant seat. At 5'3" I had leg room to spare. It seemed close to the stage and I'd sit here again any day of the week. Entrance is through a side door where you have your tkt scanned. Ladies loo on the left at the top of the stairs.

    It's what you would expect, just a monstrously huge screen which is a real novelty to experience at least once. If I had any complaints maybe the sound could be a bit louder but I would need to see a movie better suited to audio to be sure (such as a movie with vehicles or a war epic).

    I went to the Grease sing along and it was exhilarating! It’s not just singing, they have a prep session in the beginning so that everyone can do a few moves from their own seats and interact with the movie with props and sounds. A lot of people dressed up as pink ladies or t-birds as well. The energy in the room was lively, the staff was lovely and inclusive. Honestly, I had so much fun.

    Beautiful building, decor inside is gorgeous, elegant staircase, convenient escalators. They have a bar, cafe and restaurant, need to go back and try. Massive leg room and comfy chairs. Staff go above and beyond. Definitely recommend.

    I really like this cinema but under no circumstance should you EVER get food from Bar Paragon. It is LITERALLY gross. In fact the food downstairs as well is gross. The cheese that comes with the nachos is this horrible fake cheese. The worst. The popcorn is alright at least. If you book the fancy screen which I recommend the luxury experience starts once you walk in the door of cinema screen. Not before.

    Nice cinema. Comfortable seats. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Expensive but they do offer a more 'luxury cinema' experience. Floors desperately need cleaning. Would recommend otherwise. Nice bar as well to get a drink or snacks before/after the movie. Screens are not huge. It's more cosy and comfortable.

    ‘Quirky’ is the word that inevitably comes to mind when describing the Lexi. The building, accessed by pushing open a quaint green garden gate, looks like it could have served as a library, or a youth centre, or maybe a church hall in its former life. Their website states the building actually used to be a derelict pool hall before becoming a cinema. Equally wacky is the message written on the front wall in big block capital letters, beseeching passers-by to 'love me'. Its location is unusual, too, being entirely surrounded by residential properties (although I believe there are pubs and eateries further south on Chamberlayne Road).

    Inside the Lexi, there is a foyer and bar area where you can buy things like popcorn, crisps, sweet treats and even a cold beer, and there are two movie screens. The screening rooms are smaller than what you’ll be accustomed to at the big chain cinemas, however this creates an intimate, cosy setting to watch your film. In Screen 2, the seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room and the air con was pitched at just the right level. You won’t find many blockbusters at the Lexi but it’s not that kind of cinema. We were there to watch 'Last Man Standing', Nick Broomfield’s follow-up documentary to his 2002 film 'Biggie & Tupac', exploring the murders of rappers Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur, and before our film started, the trailers offered tasters of other documentaries, foreign language films and opera performances. These are movies for niche audiences but it’s good there is an outlet for them and going to the Lexi is a refreshing change from the cookie-cutter experience of seeing a film at the average high street multiplex.

    Would have been 5 stars for my experience but for the absolutely deafening sound levels.
    Lovely clean place, staff helpful and seats super comfy.
    Seriously, why would the management have the volume at this level? It ruins the experience and it is really putting us off a return visit.

    To go see a movie in the middle of a busy city in an unassuming building in the heart of London seems almost naughty. Good selection of movies in a small and inviting venue is worth the extra costs they charge.

    My travelling buddy & I wanted to do something ordinary like watch a movie in a cinema. We were surprised & ecstatic that the London Pass gave us that chance. Even better was that the Curzon Cinema was in Soho!

    We planned to visit after a lovely dinner at Bill’s. One of the waiters gave us instructions on how to get there. Before arriving at Curzon Cinema, we saw Agatha Christie’s Memorial, Ku - an award winning Gay bar, the Joy Luck Club Restaurant named after the movie itself & the entrance to Chinatown.

    When we finally arrived, we were greeted by red neon lights & the cinema looked as if it was from another era. We went in excitedly. Since we had the London Pass on us, we did not have to pay for the movie tickets. Without the London Pass, be prepared to pay at least £16.50 for a single ticket. Unfortunately, we were too late as all the movies had started screening. In the end, we decided to wait for the next available movie. The Irishman was in about an hour’s time.

    We waited patiently & went into our cinema. The seats were red in colour & of velvet material. We chose seats that were at the back & close to the doors. The movie was screened in Dolby 5.1 surround sound. I think I fell asleep after 30 minutes into the movie. It was a combination of exhaustion from all the walking, comfortable seats & slow movie that forced me into a slumber. My friend woke me up & we decided to leave.

    Curzon Soho has 3 floors & 3 screens. There’s also a bar & a café. The bar can accommodate 250 people. The theatre is heavily used for industry award evenings, private screenings & film festivals. It is also home to independent film & art house releases, documentary events & regular directors Q&As. Free WiFI is available at the lobby.

    It was quite fun & exciting really. You can’t help but wonder which movie star had stepped into the cinema & who you might bump into. I would definitely visit it again when I’m not too tired.

    As a world traveler...I'd suggest to the management to not make such a big deal that this is the largest IMAX in the U.K. The seats are too close to the screen to see the entire screen.

    The food is lacking and the room was very cold.
