    Sensible moviegoers averse to schmaltz and unnecessary crudity know to avoid the ‘Daddy's Home’ movies. That said, writer-director Sean Anders and co-scripter John Morris score a little stronger with their latest comedy about an unconventional fam...

    Five years and two spin-off movies later, writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller return to Bricksburg for a bigger, louder and brasher second ‘Lego’ instalment. But while it maintains the same level of playfulness, it doesn’t quite capture th...

    Review by Joshua RothkopfThe current golden era of high-school movies is offering the ‘Breakfast Club’ generation serious competition. Some of these films are good enough to land multiple Oscar nominations (‘Lady Bird’). Some sneak heartache int...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf Arriving with the momentum that only 21 previous global blockbusters can provide, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is the multiplex-rattling and curiously emotional culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – at least until the ...

    You’d have expected footage of a peak Aretha Franklin powerfully singing gospel to be protected at all costs. However, the singer’s intimate 1972 show, filmed over two days at a Baptist church in the Watts neighbourhood in Los Angeles, was fumbled...

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.
