    Clint Eastwood doesn't waste any time: the opening scenes of 'Sully', his stirring tribute to a great day of ultra-coordinated New York City heroism, are so frightening that it’s amazing they're about to play in multiplexes around the world. In th...

    The kingdom in question, of course, is not the one within the British Isles, but Botswana – or Bechuanaland, as it was known in the post-war years when crown prince Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) came to London to study, and fell unexpectedly in lo...

      Let’s be honest: no one actually likes the office Christmas party. You go because it’s there. You like a couple of people you work with, and after a few badly mixed cocktails it’s enjoyable enough. But you never really lose the sense that you’d be...

    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.
