Films at the Empire
The Cinema has finally returned to Halstead, with the first film being shown on Friday 7th April 2017. It has been a journey since the Theatre closed its doors to Cinema, but thanks to some determined fundraising and desire to bring it back it has now arrived...We are making Friday Night Film Night, plus a Kids Matinee film at the weekend either Saturday or Sunday afternoon, plus a Wednesday afternoon Matinee, with free tea and biscuits.
So have a look at the programme, so if you can see something you might like to come and see, and give us a go...we hope to introduce a loyalty card and also some discounts, plus some free offers. We have installed a digital projector to replace the old 35mm reel to reel, with a new sound system to help enhance the experience.
