Empire Picture Theatre

Located in the south London district of Forest Hill. The Picture Playhouse was created out of existing shop premises, and opened on 10th September 1910. By November 1910, a tea lounge had been added to the building.

It was redecorated and re-furbished in 1912, and was re-named Empire Picture Theatre. It was closed on or just after 3rd February 1914. The premises reverted back to retail use, and in 2008, a Chinese restaurant named Wok Express operated in the former cinema space.
