Cinemas in Richmond, Greater London*

Places to go to see the latest releases

You can tell us more about Richmond.

  • The Curzon is a lovely cinema showing more arthouse films than the Odeons.
  • The Odeon's an Odeon. There's a smaller Odeon right round the corner, never really worked out what it's for. The best imho is the Richmond Cinema (I think it's called) which is a small (and somewhat pretentious, admittedly) independent cinema in Water Lane.
  • Two Odeons- well sort of one- split into half comercial eg Chick flicks etc and the other building is decent arty stuff. Nice, you get your own seat (no having to scramble for the best they're already decided). Friendly staff and some rarer films are shown at the smaller cinema.
  • In addition to the main Odeon (opposite the bridge) with its 3 large screens, the Odeon Filmhouse with several much smaller screensand the Richmond Filmhouse with its arthouse offerings, a 10 minute ride on the 65 bus to Kingston will bring you to the brand new 'Rotunda' which includes a huge Odeon multiplex and the MegaBowl for those who enjoy a good game of bowling.
  • Screen 1 at the big Odeon (opposite Richmond Bridge) is lovely, but prices are very high, well it is London and the Odeon.
  • Richmond Filmhouse down Water Lane shows really good films that wouldn't make it at the Odeon. It's cheap on Mondays.
  • One next to the Police Station.Small screens.
  • The Richmond Filmhouse. A small independant cinema that only shows quality, mostly arty type films. They charge double your aveage price but for that you get a large comfy seat and a cup of tea in a china cup that you can take in with you. Plus the patrons all have too much respect for the media to interupt your viewing pleasure with munching popcorn or amusing ringtones.
  • The prices in the foyer have to be witnessed to be believed.
  • The Richmond film club shows more off-beat stuff.
  • Two Odeons showing all the latest box office smashes.
  • Plus Art House Cinema.
  • Richmond Film Theatre is excellent - good films (not just standard shoot em up crap) and is air conditioned!
  • No cinemas to speak of, as the old cinema was demolished to make room for a pool hall
