The Empire is a large cinema on the north side of Leicester Square in the City of Westminster London. It is one of many large cinemas in and adjoining the Square which are used for film premières and first runs. The original structure was built in 1884 as a theatre designed by Thomas Verity. In common with many of the cinemas that are now in the Square parts of the original structure may still remain but are hidden by modern adaptations. There is also a casino on the premises.
