Project Description

The Curzon opened in 1912 shortly after the Titanic sank. ArtReach has developed a permanent exhibition to share the cinema heritage and Collection of cinema equipment.

The Curzon Community Cinema ( ) in Clevedon, North Somerset, is Grade 2 listed and celebrates its Centenary as an operating theatre in 2012. The extraordinary auditorium contains the original pressed tin decoration that lines the walls and vaulted ceiling. The cinema holds the UK’s foremost collection of cinema projection equipment and artefacts. In 2010-11 ArtReach helped the Curzon Cinema Trust secure Heritage Lottery funding and developed, designed and installed an interpretative exhibition on three levels of the building. The exhibition explores the cinema architecture, its history and its people.
