The only cinemas left in Richmond upon Thames are in Richmond town itself, but we are lucky enough to have a good selection, showing movies across the spectrum from art house to full on Hollywood blockbusters. From 1929 to 1981 we also had an Odeon cinema in Twickenham that was originally called the Luxor and built in combination of Egyptian and modern styles.
However, there's more to Richmond than just the big cinemas - have a look at our blog post about the secret cinemas in Richmond.
And the third Richmond cinema is the wonderful Curzon Richmond, previously known as the Richmond Filmhouse and voted the best neighbourhood cinema in 2005 by LBC Radio and The Independent newspaper. Perfect for art-house films for you Richmond cinema buffs.
The Olympic Cinema in Barnes opened in October 2013 after what seemed like a very long gestation period. Great seats, sound and vision - this is a great addition to the area. Parking is never great in Barnes, but there are meters on the road alongside.

Only days til the big day of turkey. How about going out for Christmas lunch this year? Yes it is more expensive, but gives poor mum a break from the kitchen.
