LabTech has signed independent cinema group Curzon to Hawley Wharf Camden development.

The five separate cinema theatres, each with 30 seats, the 6,000 sq ft site spans eight of Camden’s 30 historic railway arches and will form a landmark cinema for the brand, their 15th in the UK and 9th in London.

Designed by Takero Shimazaki, who also designed the award-winning Curzon Bloomsbury, the appearance of Curzon Camden has been inspired by New York jazz bars and is set to launch in Autumn 2021.

Curzon’s latest venue will stand alongside a further 150 independent and branded stores, over 60 new places to eat, and 195 serviced apartments as part of Hawley Wharf’s 580,000 sq ft venture.

CEO of LabTech, Yaron Shahar said: “Hawley Wharf is shaping up to be a leading London destination, functioning as an independent eco-system where people can visit, work, live, and socialize, and we are proud to announce Curzon will sit at the heart of it. When building our leisure offer, we sought an operator that reflected the unique nature of both the local area and the emerging development. Curzon, with their rich cinematic heritage and reputation for introducing critically acclaimed films to the market, definitely fits this bill.”

Philip Knatchbull, CEO at Curzon, added: “We are thrilled to be launching our latest landmark cinema within the dynamic Hawley Wharf Camden development, taking a tangible plot of Camden’s history. Last summer we worked with LabTech on a successful pop-up cinema in the heart of Camden Market, so we know the demand is there. The railway arches are a unique space, and we are confident it will become a much-loved destination for film lovers.”
