  • In this live-action adventure, Mowgli (Scott Lee) is five before he's jungle-bred. The animals act like animals, sort of, which means that Mowgli wrestles with Baloo the bear, tumbles with wolves, but doesn't discuss philosophy with 'em. He swims ...

    Is it time to admit defeat? There have been five Asterix movies since 2002 and all of them, it’s fair to say, have been pretty dreadful. Is it possible that Goscinny and Uderzo’s comic strips about the indomitable Gaul just aren’t filmable? ‘The ...

    Director Tim Burton likes his films busy: watch a classic like 'Beetlejuice' or 'Batman', and you'll be pushed to find a single frame that isn't packed with background detail, weird creatures, ornate furnishings and intricate costumes. The problem...

    Clever old Bridget. There’s been a hell of a lot criticism of her for crimes against feminism. But here she is, triumphantly returning in her forties, less of a twit, funnier, wittier, and – perhaps most importantly – happier with herself. And unl...

    While the coastal population of Louisiana is still recovering from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in 2010, Hollywood has clearly decided that the mourning period is over. To be fair, Deepwater Horizon does come with a veneer of seriousness...

Not a great cinema with an even worse reputation - I've heard of everything from uneaten left over popcorn being resold to rats running round the floors in the screen floors, rumours or not it's certainly enough to put me off going. For a much better cinematic experience go to neighbouring Beckenham which has an Odeon, or even better Orpington has opened a brand new Odeon cinema which is far superior. Or to make more of an outing, try going further afield to Cineworld at the O2 or Showcase at Bluewater for a real treat!

Though before long I'm sure Empire will close down with the launch of VUE cinema in the up and coming St Mark's Square quarter of Bromley – pleased they saw the potential in Bromley, as a new cinema is evidentally much needed!

I mean, this cinema still works, and the screen sizes are pretty decent. But don't except to be comfy or anything. The seats are old, run down and cramped - definitely not what you may be used to in the larger chain cinemas like Cineworld or Odeon. They do however offer some great prices (i'm guessing because of the quality... or lack of) so if you want to see a new release for a bargain price and don't mind being a tad cramped, this place is for you.

Dilapidated cinema but still functions. Not great in hot or cold weather and I don't fancy its chances of survival after the new cinema opens near Bromley South station.
