I see that the screen sizes quoted fr the two Impact screens and the D-Box screen are all 1.85. With most films nowadays in Scope, this hardly seems a step forward. I can only hope that the other 7 screens are full 2.39 Scope.

Plans for the project can be found on Sutton Council’s website, planning application no. B2017/77471.

Two IMPACT auditoriums are to be included, one an “IMPACT LUXE” (no. 3) and the other an “IMPACT BLUE” (no. 8) (whatever that means?) There will also be a D-BOX auditorium (no. 2.)

Seats to include recliner and sofa premium options, except D-BOX (all recliner?)

Preliminary details follow (pending survey following strip out, acoustic engineer’s report, etc.)

Seat counts: 90, 30, 167, 66, 36, 96, 60, 156, 60, 107 = 868 total, of which 147 are recliners, and 238 are sofas.

Screen sizes:

IMPACT LUXE – 13.95x7.54m. (~46x25ft.)

IMPACT BLUE – 13.16x7.12m.

D-BOX – 7.71x4.17m.

Comparing to the existing plans, existing auditoria 2 and 5 are being converted to IMPACT auditoria, with all other auditoria subdivided to form an additional screen each.

The “flyer” on Empire Cinema’s website says “IMPACT Powered by Dolby Atmos,” so I assume both IMPACT auditoria will be so equipped.

Drawings submitted for planning are by UNICK Architects.
