Before we visit the Empire we try and ascertain which of the many cinemas within "the cinema" our film is showing. Anyone who has sat in No 7 at the sides on the right will know not to do it again. You just don't get a good view , and please, don't show huge films like "Narnia" in this badly designed area. However, the main cinema is still absolutely brilliant as are most of the others, and don't you just love it when your seat shakes from the superb sound system? Oh, My wife and I are both pensioners aqnd probably have 100 yeaqrs cinema going between us and I still highly rate the "Empire". Staff are pretty nice too.
