    If all you remember from Stephen King’s 1986 doorstop, the 1,100-page 'It' is that it’s the one with the legendarily evil clown Pennywise, a vicious and supernatural abductor of children, you’re pretty much up to speed. The clown is the best thi...

    With ‘Superbad’ and the ace ‘Booksmart’, a formula seems to have been established: dorky, essentially sweet-natured kids getting into R-rated trouble scored by DJ Shadow’s ‘Nobody Speak’. ‘Good Boys’ drops the age range to tween (though it’s certa...

    First, he took on the North Koreans; then he faced down jihadists. Now creaking Secret Service veteran Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) faces his ultimate adversary: literally everybody else. The suitably preposterous but mostly pretty watchable concl...

    One day destined to be seen as a stealth metaphor for climate-change denial – a brutal Florida hurricane plunges a house and its broken family into disaster – ‘Crawl’ will, for the time being, serve nicely as a merely okay giant alligator movie. C...

    No one was clamouring for a live-action adaptation of ‘Dora the Explorer’, the pre-teen adventurer with a talking backpack and a pet monkey, but here’s one anyway. Surprisingly, it’s weirdly likeable and seriously charming, though you’ll see its t...

    A gorgeously crafted memoir of a jaded filmmaker past his prime, ‘Pain and Glory’ could be Pedro Almodóvar’s most autobiographical work since ‘Law of Desire’. The grand irony, of course, is that there’s nothing jaded about the filmmaking on displa...

Small screens but at a fraction of the price, you'd usually pay at the cinema in London. It's in a fantastic spot meaning there's plenty of places to grab a bite to eat if you want.


A few of the screen rooms are quite small but I suppose this does allow them to provide more screens and therefore a wider variety of films and even broadcasts of plays at a fraction of West End theatre prices. The night life at the top end of the market street has started to pick up now thanks to the addition of this cinema and the restaurants on the same site. A few years old now and the Empire is still looking clean.

Small but perfectly formed, the screen rooms are predominantly smaller than your typical VUEs and Odeon cinemas but the screen is proportionate to the room size and you don't notice the difference.

Tuesdays, all day any (2D) film is £3.95 - the cinema understandably is popular on Tuesdays so always worth buying tickets in advance!

Staff are friendly and toilet facilities are ample.

Situated a 5 minute walk from Walthamstow Central station with a number of independent and chain restaurants very close by.

The rooms are small but comfortable, I'm a massive fan of 'Saver Tuesdays' where you can see most films for £3.95 ( I think it's £4.95 for 3D Movies).

It's in a helpful location too with good restaurants nearby if you want some pre or post movie bites to eat.
