I do remember films being shown here after it closed as a cinema. In 1969 I saw Burt Lancaster in “The Train” here. I also remember walking down the Empire from Hamworthy Primary, as we had our school assemblies in there, not to mention the Christmas play.

The Empire was owned by Randolf Meech, but manager Bob Coleman took over in 1942. An unexploded bomb landed in the car park closing the cinema for a week from Whit Monday 25th May, 1942
