Event Description

Empire Records follows the goings-on at a dying record store in Delaware over the course of one day, including an autograph signing by washed-up '80s pop-star Rex Manning.

That day is 8 April. Now 25 years later, The Bioscope is proud to join cinemas around the world in celebrating this unique day, and one of the 90's most quintessential cult classics.

To make the day even better, we've teamed up with our 44 Stanley neighbours Mr Vinyl, to give every ticket buyer a special complementary vinyl on the night! We will be putting together a special selection of 90s pop classics and will have them available to grab on a first come first served basis when you arrive! 


The new Bioscope location is set to be a 47 seater cinema. We are however selling far less in order for there to be space to sit apart from other members of the public. We ask you to please keep your mask on the entire time within the cinema premises. Drinks and snacks will be on sale and can be consumed during the film, but please consider those around you when your mask is off for this. 44 Stanley is largely an open air shopping centre, and The Bioscope has a great outside space directly outside the cinema that public can make use of. Within the cinema, we will also make use of temperature reading, air filtering, and constant cleaning to make sure that The Bioscope remains a safe and hygienic experience.

After purchasing tickets, if you experience any COVID related symptoms, or come into contact with anyone who has tested positive, we ask you to please not attend the screening. Please understand that The Bioscope will not be able to refund you this ticket. We are happy however for you to give your ticket to someone else that can attend. If this is not possible, we would be happy to exchange your ticket for a future screening/event. This can all be coordinated via email at [email protected]
