    ‘It could’ve been worse’ may not sound like gushing praise. But when a film expands on a concept dreamed up by a production executive and his four-year-old son (really), expectations for said film naturally plummet through the floor. Still, while ...

    Overblown in almost every respect (not only its giant ape), 'Kong: Skull Island' is the kind of Hollywood fever dream that, in its first few minutes alone, throws at you a WWII bomber crash, a sizzling montage of Cold War nuclear escalation and a ...

    “It’s morphin’ time!” fans will yell, as waves of light explode, color-coded armor creeps onto bodies, and tears of recognition are wiped away. Rarely has a franchise dominated childhoods as thoroughly as the ’90s-era live-action 'Mighty Morphin P...

    Provocative onscreen and off, Nate Parker’s slave-rebellion drama pulls off a hijacking before it even begins: that of the title of DW Griffith’s 1915 silent epic movie known for celebrating the Ku Klux Klan and for demonising angry black men as r...

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.
