I’ve been here and to be honest, the ’re-branding' was pretty poor. All EMPIRE majorly did was replace the sign at the front and some cosmetic changes. The majority of the ODEON style text is still there. Heck EMPIRE also just stickered the EMPIRE logo over the poster cases and the refreshment area menus.

Massive refurbishment/rebuilding by Cineworld taking place. The foyer is gutted and being totally reconstructed at the moment. 4 or 5 screens at any one time are out of action for over a month for building work.

Quartz from Tiles Porcelain in Cineworld.

This company claims to have supplied the black and red polished quartz “sparkle” floor tiles used in the refurbished lobbies. They are currently selling them at the price of £29.99 per sq. metre.

(Note: The quality of these quartz “sparkle” tile products seems to vary and I’ve never seen any on display that look quite like those I’ve seen in Cineworlds, and that price is rock bottom.)
