The Empire Cinemas chain has entered administration, leading to the loss of 150 jobs and the closure of six cinemas.
Eight of the 14 cinemas in the group – under the Empire Cinemas and Tivoli brands – will remain open.
But the locations that have been closed with immediate effect are:
• Bishop’s Stortford
• Catterick Garrison
Sites to remain open are located in:
• High Wycombe
The administrators say they are seeking a buyer.
The financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, inflation and the cost of living crisis have been blamed for the closures.
