Located in Kettering, Northamptonshire. The Empire Cinema opened on 3rd May 1920 with “The Still Alarm”. It had seats for 400 in the stalls and 100 in the small circle. It was renamed in 1942 to the New Empire Cinema. But unfortunately due to competition from the Savoy Cinema, Gaumont, Regal/Granada and Odeon, the New Empire Cinema was closed on 19th June 1954.

After laying empty and unused for several years, it was converted into a builders merchants. Today the auditorium has been gutted and converted into a tyre/garage.
