  • Description
    Colour photograph showing the façade of the Empire Theatre (a cinema) in Consett. Taken from across the road, it shows a thinly classical pedimented façade with a single-storey extension, fully glazed with pedestalled Doric columns supporting a broad shallow-arched pediment. The extension houses a roomy bar and exhibition space with full disabled access and facilities. The legend EMPIRE THEATRE appears below the pediment on the main façade, and posters inside the glazed foyer advertise forthcoming attractions.
