A MIDNIGHT MOVIES event to raise awareness and funds to shield the Curzon Soho from potential future demolition due to Crossrail transport Plans.
We're putting the band back together! In the name of #SaveCurzonSoho, the cult film curators Midnight Movies – who started out at Curzon Soho in 2008 – return for a one-off special to help save the cinema, bringing their unique brand of late-night entertainment to all of you after-dark people. With a roof-raising performance from the London City Voices choir, some exclusive artwork and prizes, bespoke cocktail menu, DJ and more, this promises to be a fun night and a timely reminder of what makes Soho – and this much-loved venue – so special.
