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.
