I have heard that the canopy is to be removed, lets hope so!
I worked there in 1975 when Tommy was on.
It will be a shame if it is demolished, but it does badly need refurbishing, especially the exterior.
I have been going to the Empire since the 70’s.
It was great then & felt like an event when you went, now it is shabby but still impressive. When I saw Narnia there both the festoon curtain & the other curtains were not used, just lights projected onto the screen!
I have heard that the main Cinema is to be changed into as many as 8 screens, this would be awful as there is only the Empire & the Odeon left.
The Odeon West End has been sold to a property developer, so will be demolished I expect. It is a shame because the whole look of L.S. will be changed away from cinema. Steve
