Located in the centre of the small Derbyshire town of Heanor on a triangular site, bounded by Red Lion Square, Market Street and Fletcher Street. The Empire Theatre was opened in 1911. It was designed for both stage and film use. The proscenium was 26 feet wide, and there were six dressing rooms. It was operated by Midland Empire Theatres of Nottingham. In later years it was operated by the Nottingham based Eskay circuit.

The Empire Theatre was closed in the early-1980’s with Brigitte Bardot in “Legend of Frenchie King”. The building has been demolished and a block of flats known as Empire Court has been built on the site.
