It appears squatters have caused substantial damage to the cinema since closing: https://walthamforestecho.co.uk/2023/09/11/walthamstow-empire-squatters-intend-to-stay-in-trashed-new-home/

Now closed due to Empire entering administration as of yesterday.

I see the (cataloguing) logic, but it’s a shame that most readers will regard this multiples as Walthamstow’s only/original Empire.

The Empire Cinema at Bell Corner, Walthamstow is listed on Cinema Treasures on its own page as the Tatler Cinema Club.

There was an Empire cinema at ‘Bell Corner’ Wlathamstow.

£3.95 tickets for most films on a Tuesday makes this easily one of the least expensive cinemas in the London area as of April 2015.

This brand new multiplex – the first to be constructed by the Empire circuit (which has hitherto been built up from existing cinemas that had to be divested, following circuit takeovers, under competition rules) – is situated in the basement of a high-rise development called The Scene at Cleveland Place, which also provides apartments, retail and restaurant spaces. A small entrance hall leads to steps down to the basement foyer and concession area.

The capacities of the nine screens are: 1: IMPACT large format screen, with 3D capability and 170 seats in total, including a separate VIP seating area; 2: 54 seats; 3: 101 seats (3D); 4: 101 seats (3D); 5: 85 seats; 6: 79 seats; 7: 101 seats (3D); 8: 96 seats and 9: 309 seats in total (including VIP seating area and 3D).

In a nice touch, there are two stand-alone cabinets on the street outside which contain film information posters.
