I am usually not a fan of mainstream chain cinemas, like cineworld and odeon, however I was pleasantly surprised by this cinema. It was extremely clean and well-staffed. The screen was very big considering the small number of seats. Only criticism, is that there could...More

Have to agree with one of my fellow reviewers on here. Went to a screening in the Imax screen at this theatre. The screen is just huge & hugely impressive too! The picture was absolutely faultless & the sound was just right too. Many congratulations...More

I went to see Avengers: Infinity War at the Empire Leicester Square (3D IMAX) since it had a showing at 10am. Lets start with the positive: The screen is great, really clear and even with the 3D glasses was extremely bright. The sound I would...More

On this visit my wife and I saw the new Tomb Raider film. The film itself was ok (we’ve seen better - and worse!), and the staff were all very helpful. We watched it in Screen 3. Very compact - 23 seats! Both the picture...More
