The old Empire was sold to R.L. Kemp (Cinemas) Ltd in 1930. The New Empire Architect was Alfred Thraves, constructed by J H Metcalf Bros. Doncaster, who were also Directors. Interior decorations were carried out by W.J. Wilson & Son of Mansfield. This was the third cinema to be build by the Kemp Group, the two previous were Majestic Retford October 1927 and Majestic Mapperley October 1929. In May 1933 the group built another Majestic in Swadlincote.
