Try the local history library (in the main library) or Kirklees photographic archive

Anybody know where I could find pictures of the Empire from it’s heyday??? My friend’s buying what is presently ‘cybernet’ and we want to return it to it’s former glory as far as is possible – in the interior decoration at least.
We’d especially like to have some old pictures of it’s heydays up on the walls!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The Kine' Yearbook 1937 gives a seating capacity of 840 during the period of time it was operated by ABC Cinemas.

Does anyone have info on the Empire in the 1930’s or 40’s.. my great Grandfather was manager there when it was a ‘respectable’ cinema!
thanks
