Bleeding Cool bring us some genuinely sad news that will cast a shadow over some people’s bank holiday Monday. It appears that the legendary Screen One at the Empire Leicester Square is to make way for 2, possibly 4 smaller screens.

From a business point of view it makes some sense, but as the most impressive venue for film premieres, a location I was fortunate enough to visit for Star Trek Generations in 1994, Star Trek: First Contact in 1996, Star Trek: Insurrection in 1998, The Hulk in 2003 and The Phantom Menace 3D last year, it’s a shocking loss.

Check out Bleeding Cool for a look back at the history of Screen One.
