    ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. The clue is in the title. The second ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film is aiming for the shadows. It wants to be a thriller, where the erotic risk of Christian Grey’s sex dungeon is upstaged by actual danger (of the non S&M variet...

    This follow-up to Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ brings back most of the same team (though Burton has stepped back to be a producer), and the same high-energy and bucketful of 3D digital effects approach. Mia Wasikowska returns as the emi...

    ‘The Light Between Oceans’ may go down as the film in which Michael Fassbender was out-acted by a toddler. Yes! Michael Fassbender, the actor’s actor, he of the brooding intensity, who sends straight men weak at the knees. It’s not that he acts ba...

    If the future of Hollywood lies to the East, we should all get very comfortable with crowd-pleasing, cross-cultural action blockbusters like ‘The Great Wall’. Guaranteed neither to offend nor confuse audiences from Beijing to Boston, this is as mu...

    This delightful animated feature from the studio behind the Minions movies takes a tired-sounding idea – a comedy set around a talent contest – and turns it into something winning and witty. ‘Sing’ is fast and frenetic, dashing from character to c...

    Before you get funny, no, they haven’t come for his cat this time. Keanu Reeves is back as the taciturn ex-assassin prone to murderous rages: 2014’s ‘John Wick’ saw him taking on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog (it reminded him of his dead...

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.
