A LOCAL MP was given a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Wigan’s multiplex cinema.

Yvonne Fovargue met staff and learned the tricks of the movie trade at Empire Cinemas at Robin Park, on a fact-finding mission to learn about the contribution cinema makes to the local economy.

The member for Makerfield said: “I really enjoyed the visit and was pleased to see how Empire is investing in the latest technologies like digital and 3D cinema and the innovative role that it plays in the local community through its many promotions aimed at bringing the enjoyment of cinema.”
