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

In the Autumn of 2011, work began refurbishing and extending the cinema. It now has the original 12 screen plus 4 Studio screens. It was taken over by Cineworld and re-named Cineworld on 16th June 2017.

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.

Massive refurbishment/rebuilding by Cineworld taking place. The foyer is gutted and being totally reconstructed at the moment. 4 or 5 screens at any one time are out of action for over a month for building work.
