The Prince Charles Cinema is nestled just 50 yards from the vastly populated Leicester Square, home of the largest auditorium in Britain, the Odeon, the former Warner Brothers Theatre (now a Vue), and the Empire (its large screen now twinned for IMAX).
The Prince Charlees Cinema is a combined repertory and new cinema house, with a sensual red auditorium with 285 plush seats downstairs and a new plush purple 104-seat screen with executive, high-back purple leather recliner chairs upstairs. The downstairs venue is also equipped for 70mm presentation.
Both upper and lower screens are equipped for 35mm, with a Kinoton FP30D, Mono, Dolby – A type, SR and Dolby Digital SRD, 1.6Kw Lamp. The upstairs screen sizes range from:
2:35 – 21ft x 10ft

while the upstairs auditorium measures:
