  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

Curzon Mayfair

There's been a Curzon Cinema on this Mayfair site since 1934, but it wasn't until the 1940s, when the lease was acquired by the Wingate family, that the cinema began to get a reputation as one of London's top arthouse cinemas, showing foreign language films in comfortable surroundings. The current building dates from 1966 and has two auditoriums, one with 311 seats and the other with 101, and it hosts at least a dozen premieres every year.

The cinema is served by the 14, 19, 22, 36, 38, 73, 82 and 137 bus routes (stop outside Hilton Park Lane) and the Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tube. The nearest NCP car park is in Carrington Street.
