Patience runs out over Empire Cinemas site, Ealing
EMPIRE Cinemas has run out of time to begin work at its Ealing Broadway site, according to the council.
It decided to apply for a compulsory purchase order for the disused site at a cabinet meeting of July 25.
Council leader Julian Bell said: “We’ve been very patient with them, but enough is enough.”
Also agreed at the meeting was a decision to begin looking for a new developer to buy the site and build a cinema in Ealing, which has not had one since 2008.
