Empire Cinema

Located in Market Deeping, Lincolnshire, to the north of Peterborough. The Empire Cinema was built for the Jack Bancroft chain, and opened at the end of September 1928. By 1930 it had been equipped with a British Acoustic(BA) sound system.

The Empire Cinema was closed on 11th May 1963. The building was sold to become a car salesroom for Market Deeping Motors, and they occupied the building until the late-2000’s. In 2014 it was vacant, but had been converted to a gymnasium in 2015.

Now in use as a gym, with the Empire name returned. Interior seems to have been stripped of all traces of past use. Photo from December 2015.
