“Old fashioned gem”
Review of Empire Cinema

Empire Cinema
Ranked #1 of 1 Fun & Games in Sandwich
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Normally a multiplex girl, I discovered this super little cinema on a Saturday afternoon wandering around the delightful town of Sandwich. Just one screen, one film showing twice that day. No all day opening! Matinee charge £5, an absolute bargain. Old fashioned service and free seating ticket. Comfy seats, red curtains everywhere. Good sound system, it's no Bluewater but I simply loved it and will definitely return.

Its such a cute little cinema, everything is so simple and easy and you get to see the film you want. Its a flashback to the way things used to be and sandwich is a lovely little town to go for a drink in afterwards.

The cinema always looked like a house from the outside. Inside it has great seating which allows a good view wherever you sit, by the way it is stepped down, how unusual nowadays!
I love the 'personal' feel of the Empire, and go there as much as I am able, it is comfortable and has a relaxed atmosphere as well as being very reasonably priced, go on, give it a whirl!

Fantastic little cinema which gets the latest films and does classic showings as well; it also puts on good films for children at half term and some holiday times.Seats can be reserved. Admission prices are realistic and therefore really good value.An experience no to be missed when visiting Sandwich

Family owned cinema run by real enthusiasts who's prices severely undercut the pricey chain cinemas and recently installed an amazing modern sound system to go with the superb picture quality. Cult classics shown occasionally in the lower cinema which has tables and a bar not to mention the art deco organ! Have been going for years and will continue to do so. It's a gem.
