Cineworld Poole (Tower Park)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Tower Park Leisure Park, 3 miles northeast of Poole. First opened on 15th December 1989 as a 10-screen AMC theatre with 2,080 seats. It was quickly changed to UCI when CIC purchased AMC in the early-1990’s.

It was later owned and operated by Empire Cinemas.

A full refurbishment was carried out in November 2008 when six small ‘Studio’ screens were added, and one of the screen was converted into an IMAX screen. Stadium seating was installed in all screens and the foyer was completely re-designed.

In July 2016 it was one of five Empire Cinemas purchased by the Cineworld chain. The other four were the Empire, Leicester Square, London, Basildon, Hemel Hempstead and Bromley.

LOL this is where I started out as projectionist 20 years ago LOL.

It was great in its day but since I left and over the years this dump really started to sound like a load of RUBBISH!

The house Dolby fader on the Dolby CP65 I believe that used to be installed was often turned up beyond 7 buy the other younger projectionists and they busted in several hundreds pounds worth of surround speakers!

It was great time and leaning experience, but would I do this type of job again and at this site. Not for £million pounds!

I couldn’t care less what upgrades they’ve made recently with this digital nonsense. first impressions is what makes it count and this cinema as failed time and time again in the past though the 1990’s and into the early years of the 21st century. Its not worth going to this site! Its not an Event!

If you want and EVENT! Go to the Empire Leicester Square screen1 JBL installation 56KW THX sound system its OUT OF THIS WORLD!
