  • Visitor Information

Cineworld on the north side of Leicester Square is a state-of-the-art nine screen cinema in the centre of London which shows the latest releases and big blockbuster movies. Originally The Empire, the building was reconstructed in the 1920s though most of the ornate plasterwork was removed in the '60s. The auditorium would later be known as Empire 1 or Screen 1, now home to the largest IMAX in the UK (in terms of seats). The curved screen is also the widest cinema screen in the country. A total refurbishment of the lobby areas in 2018 transformed the former Screen 2 into a 4DX screen where films can enhanced with seat motion, wind, rain, lights and scents along with the standard video and audio.
