Scotland Cinema: Empire Clydebank for sale on open market

The Empire Clydebank was one of eight profitable cinemas to survive the initial management of the Empire Cinemas property. Six locations south of the border were closed at the time of the July announcement, resulting in the loss of 150 jobs.

The real estate consultant CBRE was commissioned with the sale of a portfolio of eight cinemas.

The agent said there has been “significant interest from a wide pool of potential buyers” as interest in the open market cinemas increases.

The assets are described as “presenting buyers with a fantastic opportunity to use a portion of the properties post-acquisition.”

Toby Hall, Senior Director, Operating Real Estate at CBRE said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire profitable, running theaters in a market with notoriously high barriers to entry.”

“The sale can either serve as a platform for parties to enter the sector or allow existing operators to supplement their current inventory by acquiring single or multiple cinemas.”
