Day 39: Empire, Leicester Square

09 Feb

The Empire is a large cinema on the north side of Leicester Square, in the City of Westminster.

It is one of many large cinemas in and adjoining the square which are used for film premières and first runs.

The original structure was built in 1884, as a theatre. In common with many of the cinemas that are now on the square, parts of the original structure may still remain, but are hidden by its modern adaption.
