Screen 1 (437 Seats) Empire Cinemas Newcastle

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in The Gate leisure complex in Newcastle city centre, the 12-screen Odeon opened in November 2002, after the closure of the Odeon (former Paramount Theatre) in Pilgrim Street. It was almost immediately taken over by Empire Cinemas and re-named Empire.

Seating capacities in the screens range from 436, down to 67

In the Autumn of 2011, work began refurbishing and extending the cinema. When completed it will have 20 screens, including 6 luxury studio cinemas.

I’ve been here and to be honest, the ’re-branding' was pretty poor. All EMPIRE majorly did was replace the sign at the front and some cosmetic changes. The majority of the ODEON style text is still there. Heck EMPIRE also just stickered the EMPIRE logo over the poster cases and the refreshment area menus.
