The Vue cinema company has acquired the old Empire cinema at Greenbridge Retail Park.

It says film lovers should gear up for a new big screen experience in the town, and that the 12-screen site is set to open very soon to bring the big screen back to Greenbridge.

Vue says investment being made in a comprehensive refit to take place next year, which will see it transformed into a full recliner seating venue.

Vue will join existing neighbours Nuffield Health and Pizza Hut along with a variety of shops and a soon-to-be-opened Hollywood Bowl, and is promised as an ideal location for a family day out. 

Toby Bradon, General Manager of Vue UK and Ireland, said: “Bringing Vue to Swindon is something we are very excited about. 

"At Vue we love bringing the best of the big screen to customers, and this is exactly what we are going to do very soon at this new site, with our new Swindon customers soon able to enjoy all the latest blockbusters, classic titles and the best in live music, sport and theatre. 

“We can’t wait to bring the big screen experience back to Greenbridge and we can be sure that all our customers will get lost in great stories with us.”
