The 11-screen Virgin opened on 12th December 1996. It was taken over by UGC, then Cineworld. In March 2006 Empire Cinemas took control and it was re-branded Empire.

Seating capacities in the screens range from 550, down to 129.

It was closed on 6th July 2023 due to Empire Cinemas UK entering into administration.

This site did not open in 2006. It was built in 1996 as a Virgin Cinema, becoming UGC, Cineworld and then Empire in 2006.
