Cinemas around Walthamstow

Odeon Cinema South Woodford

60-64 High Rd, London E18 2QL, UK – 0333 014 4501

This is a difficult one to review for me. It's my local cinema and I've been going there my whole life. Nevertheless here we go. Staff come and go as young adults take jobs for the holidays. Sometimes these temporary staff members are good, and sometimes they just need a bit more experience/training. The long-term members of staff have always been lovely to me. The screens and general decor of the cinema needs some attention. If I remember correctly, screen 3 doesn't have surround sound because some of the speakers are broken. The service is normally quick even when it's busy - and it has been busy in the past with queues right out the door. Like any cinema, the food is expensive for what you're getting, but I understand that's where they make their money as film distributors take a decent cut off ticket sales. Overall I love this cinema and if you're local too you probably don't need to read this review. I wouldn't recommend it expect anybody to go out their way to travel to this cinema.

Moved to the area a month ago, and after trying this cinema, I decided to get limitless membership. I am not regretting it at all! I can go every time I fancy watching a movie, cinema is nice enough, and staff are extremely friendly! Only minus is that with my limitless I cannot collect the tickets from the machine and I have to queue every time; also snacks are a bit pricy and screens are small, but apart from that I like it a lot

Empire Cinemas - Walthamstow

267 High St, Walthamstow, London E17 7FD, UK

First visit and I was pleasantly surprised. Went there with the kids on a week day, so there was not so many people, which is just how I love it. The movie was in screen 6 and this is a TINY theater, there was probably only 7 rows, which I found quite an odd size, but the screen itself was clear, sound very good. The staffs are polite and helpful, the toilets were very clean. Food price seem cheaper compared to other cinemas, but my biggest surprise was that the sweet popcorn was actually sweet!! Very good experience. How is this place during the weekend when teenagers go there, I cannot comment as this was my first visit.

Popcorn was ridiculously salty, I've asked for exchange but I have been told that this is a standard amount of salt they are adding and there is no point to get a new box. Bathrooms are really clean, very convenient close to the transport and few restaurants. Could ba a little warmer I think AC was on a full blast.

Theatres for Walthamstow

Ye Olde Rose & Crown

53 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 4SA, UK – 020 8509 3880

This is an excellent theatre pub in upcoming Walthamstow. The bar is spacious and has regular live music. The drinks are very reasonably priced. The theatre is upstairs and entry is up stairs. It is an intimate space seating around 100. Plays, musicals and a panto are performed here and the standard is very high. It is proving to be a very popular venue. We'll worth a visit. Pizza is also available from an oven just outside the entrance!

Huge friendly bar, lots of seating. There's often music, but not generally obtrusive. The selection of bottled, tap and pump ales is very nice. There's an entertainment / rehearsal space upstairs.

Theatre N16

5 Ashley Rd, London N17 9LJ, UK – 07969 138899

A lovely theatre space offering great quality productions of mostly new writing plus there is decent air conditioning. The only drawback is that it's a couple of flights of stairs to get there and the bar is on the ground floor!

Theatre is very small and cozy. Quite a few steps to get to it and you have to walk through the bar, which smells really strongly of chip fat.
