Chorley Empire Cinema

Founded in 1986 and now based in the 1910-built Chorley Little Theatre, we show films and screen events throughout the year (mainly on Sundays) with HD projection and surround sound. Our screen is installed above the stage and the venue seats 230. We aim to show the latest films in a friendly atmosphere, where a warm welcome (and a bar) awaits. We're all volunteers and we keep prices low so as many people as possible can enjoy films.

Synopsis

National Theatre Live: Present Laughter The multi award-winning production of Noël Coward’s provocative comedy featuring Andrew Scott (Vanya, Fleabag) returns to the big screen. As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching. Filmed live from The Old Vic in London during a sold out run in 2019, Matthew Warchus (Matilda The Musical) directs this giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness. Tickets £12 (Cinema Loyalty Card £10) Doors open 6.30pm https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/booking/t-gamlaer

Synopsis

A tale of revenge that has stood the test of time, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy is reimagined for the modern day as a gripping psychological thriller! Transcending the confines of the stage, the film utilises nearly every room of the Theatre Royal Windsor to transform it into the immortal Elsinore Castle, from basement dungeon to roof-top battlement. The critically acclaimed, recent stage cast of ‘Hamlet’, including Ian McKellen, Frances Barber (King Lear, Chekhov’s The Seagull) and Jonathan Hyde (King Lear, Titanic, Crimson Peak), bring their iconic roles to life in this compelling new film adaptation. Tickets £15 (Cinema Loyalty Card £8) https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/chorleytheatre/t-krxdgvk
