“Horrible outdated cinema”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Dirty, very expensive and very small screens. I would travel to go elsewhere. The interior is so outdated and not clean, I much prefer Bromley cinemas or VUE in Croydon.

“Run down building poorly managed”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

This is my local cinema but used as a last resort. It caters mainly to families. It is run down and operated by very young people. One employee was extremely rude. Go somewhere else if you can.

“run down building”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

From the outside this building is the worst eyesore in Beckenham......it is so run down I am sure they must lose potential customers who decide not to venture in. In the cafe area the chairs are broken and have tape over the holes on the cushions. The front steps have holes in them so could be dangerous.....who runs this place ?

“Go to a multiplex like Bluewater - sadly it's not worth trying to support local”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We booked tickets for a 2d film, which was then shown in 3d. Awful experience. Staff had to be told the problem. They then disappeared for nearly an hour. Eventually resolved after half the audience complained or left. Refunds offered but only one person on till on Friday night, taking c 10 mins per person (would have been x100!)
Complained via their website, asking for recompense, had a standard response from head office and heard nothing from Beckenham even after several chases.
That's how much they value their customers. And that's why they don't deserve the custom.

“Our local cinema”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We are lucky to have the Odeon on our doorstep as it not only shows up to date popular films but also art films and Director's Choice. It is a multiplex so you have a good range of films from which to choose. The seats are comfortable although the air-conditioning could be better. For those who need it the car park next door is extremely reasonable and you can usually find a spot. Also the cinema is on quite a few bus routes.
