Empire Cinemas set out to put the community at the centre of the movie-going experience, with the creation of a number of money saving schemes. We’ve been busy putting together a scheme to suit everyone. Empire Birmingham Great Park has an IMAX Screen delivering the Ultimate movie going experience. We also host a number of popular schemes: SAV£RDAY Tuesday – Great savings on movies every Tuesday. Parent and Baby – Exclusive screenings for parents with babies, in an appropriate setting. Last Chance to see Thursdays – Never miss another film. Every Thursday we screen selected films, coming to the end of their run, at our fantastic Saverday price. Empire Jnrs – With tickets at pocket money prices for some of the greatest classic family films and recent releases every Saturday and Sunday morning. Empire Seniors – A selection of some of the best recent and classic films shown every Wednesday morning for our older customers.

Seats are comfortable, prices for tickets are great value, staff are mostly friendly and helpful, snacks are overpriced as in every cinema in the world but a good selection and the ice cream bar is great. Would definitely recommend.

Always good. Comfortable seats, good audio, great screens. Good choice of food. Queuing for just ice cream isn’t always straight forward though.
