Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located in the Whittington Moor district to the north of Chesterfield, Derbyshire at the corner of Nelson Street and Sheffield Road. The Empire Cinema was opened in late-1909. It was a single story building. It was still open in 1914, but was probably closed due to the opening of the nearby new Lyceum Theatre in December 1913.

The Empire Cinema was converted into a billiard hall, which had five tables. The billiard hall was closed around 1946 and the building went to other uses. It was demolished in the 1950’s and a car dealership occupied the site. A car wash operates from the site in 2015.
