Margate's iconic Dreamland building has been transformed into a retro cinema named the Empire. The filming has begun with Margate's seafront being coated in fake snow and decorated with Christmas lights.
Margate is now hosting actors and film crews as they shoot the new movie Empire of Light - starring Academy Award-winners Colin Firth and Olivia Colman.
Written and directed by Sam Mendes - the Oscar-winner behind films including 1917 and James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre - it is rumoured to be a love story set in and around a cinema during the 80s.
Margate is frequently changing with the times and becoming one of the most popular seaside towns in East Kent. Book direct with us for a unique getaway in iconic Margate!
