The Empire Theatres main auditorium is undergoing a refurbishment to improve the patron experience and increase the standard of our existing amenities.
As part of this refurbishment, the seating has been removed from the main auditorium over the weekend and work is ongoing on significant Box Office alterations.
While this work is undertaken, the main auditorium will not be operating, however our other venues, the Empire Church Theatre and The Armitage Centre, will feature plenty of varied entertainment until March, when the main theatre is in use once again.
Our Box Office is also still operational during the renovation and can be accessed out of the opposite end of the building.
Please note all patrons will be required to check in via QR Code when attending the theatre.
Increased hygiene facilities and social distancing measures are in place including COVID safe seating in the auditoriums, contactless payment preferred, and extensive contact tracing policies required for all patrons.
We encourage and support the use of the COVID Safe App. For more information on the Empire Theatre COVID Safe operations please visit the COVID Safe page of our website.
