When the Empire Cinema opened on 25th November 1912, it had a quainter name as "The Salford Electric Empire Theatre"
The cinema was designed by Northwest England’s prolific cinema architect John Knight.
In 1932, the cinema was put out of action for a few months by a fire which destroyed the screen, curtains, and speakers, and badly damaged the piano, the orchestra pit, and the organ.
The cinema reopened in April of the same year and continued showing films until 9th August 1959 when Wilfred Hyde White starred in “Emergency Ward 10”.
In 1960, the cinema was purchased by the British Legion for use as a social club which it remained until its demolition in 1981.
