Both options are correct. For the BMW sentence, I personally would also have chosen 'der' and 'ihn' over es. 'Es' is not incorrect but considering that Paul starts of with "Der BMW.." and the car was being driven by a person in that moment 'der' and 'ihn' seems a better fit. "Das Kino" is already neutral gender so it is not a good example.
"Ich war mit einer Freundin im Kino. Wir haben Keinohrhasen geschaut. Sandra fragt, "War es gut?"

You possibly misunderstood me or I misunderstood the action being described. Up above when I was referring to what Sandra said, "War es ein guter Film?", I thought she was referring to "der Film". Shouldn't she have said, "War er ein guter Film?"

"Er" suggests we are talking about a male person and not a thing. It is more clear when you use "es". "Was it a good movie" ="War es ein guter Film?" is correct. It is also convenient to use "es" when it is unclear what article the noun follows.
I remember me and Byron had a lot of discussions about "der Koffer". I wagely remember a sentence like "Habe sie ihn gesehen. I personally choose "es".
