Aug 2019
situated in the busiest new markt area with unusual footfalls and crowd ths is one of the best non multiplex single screen cinema hall which screens hollywood as well as bollywood films .. grand hotel and indian museum and are just a stones throw away from this famous hall. the seating is comfortable and movie watching experience is awesome. if you are in kolkata and new market area and movie buff then NEW EMPIRE is not to be missed .CINEMA HALL.

CHILDHOOD DREAM OF PREVIOUS ERA
Jun 2018
This is the place where every teenagers of the nineties were must have shown his face . Back to 35 years , the Esplanade area was not at all like it nowadays . not so much over crowded .
There were only single screen movie halls . The idea of the Multiplexes does not exists at that time .
At that point of time the were so many cinema halls in this particular area of the city . Lighthouse , New Empire Globe , Tiger , Elite , Paradise , Orient are some of them . At that time if anybody are keen to see the best of the Hollywood movies , New Empire caters all of them .
You don't believe the ticket prices at that time , Its Rs. 2 INR in pre -nineties era .
Hundred of young stars and other people are locked themselves inside a tunnel like pavement made of iron to grab a ticket at that price and they have to pass through a hundred stairs to find themselves in the top floor of the New Empire Cinema hall , wooden chairs filled up with viewers .
Their excitement touches the roof as soon as the movie starts.
All the greatest movies of all time were released in this hall . I have seen almost hundred movies there .
Those were the days .which will never return .
Of course there were normal tickets as well .But there was always a demand for those wooden chair tickets .
Maybe the price of the ticket and the ease of smoking may be one great causes of that rush .
This facility is not available right now in New Empire Cinema Hall .

Old but good

This is one of the old movie theater. Screening quality and sound quality are good. The best advantage of the theater is, it is just beside the main road.

I have visited New Empire for many many times. Once upon a time it was my favourite hot spot to move into. Still feel that nostalgia whenever I visit the place

nice cinema hall with affordable price
Sep 2017
It remains as a landmark of kolkata,one of the oldest.
Very cheap ticket price if you want to enjoy a movie with a little pinch in pocket,surrounded by restaurants.

will surely suggest to try this one.

This used to a fine cinema house in central kolkata, but with passing time and the management being so incompetent that the hall has lost it's grandeur and is merely standing as an old building now.
