The Empire has also outline various changes it is undergoing under new chairman Jo Collis.

A spokesman said: "Being a voluntary charity with all members giving their time free of charge and making sure the theatre is run successfully, the decision to give something back to the public will take place from April 1, with all admissions for movies at £5 for all seats on Friday and Wednesday.

"Kids' films on Saturdays and school holidays will remain £3 for all seats.

"A new website is being worked on and work to rectify issues some customers have had with booking using credit and debit cards is ongoing.

"All these things take a lot of organising for our executive committee, so please be patient.

"The school holidays will see a programme for our young folk and families. We look forward to your support."
