The Empire has been refurbished by the Town Council, and is now operating as a cinema & play centre.

What is happening with this cinema? Is it now closed and awaiting demolition/development or is it still trading?

The bingo Hall in the former stalls area of the building ceased trading in January 2008 due mainly to the downturn in people attending caused by the no-smoking ban. Although the situation of the cinema did look secure this also closed a few weeks later as the owner of the cinema due to the financial situation put the building up for sale.
Due to a huge local outcry and support from families and children on the Island and the nearest cinema being 64 miles away at Llandudno Junction the owner agreed to re-open the cinema in time for Easter school holidays in 2008.
Although the building remains for sale and in September the pub chain Wetherspoons expressed an interest in purchasing the building, thankfully this fell through, also an application by a multiplex operator to build a new complex on the Island also fell through.
Hopefully the cinema operation will continue for a long time until the fate of the building is determined.
