Empire Cinemas wanted to enhance its movie-going experience even further by introducing illuminated displays to advertise upcoming films, along with some nostalgic film images to create a focal point in their foyer.
This collection of Slimlite boxes was designed to capture the eye of cinema-goers, who share Empire Cinema’s love of film.
We have worked with Empire Cinemas for a number of years and created the unique one-sheet Slimlite lightbox installation, using a combination of customised aluminium carcasses, with back lit LED illumination and their front opening Ultragrip profile for interchangeability of titles.
The lightboxes in the cinema lobby, created a focal point display of both original film posters of cinema classics including Pulp Fiction and Close Encounters, alongside those promoting the latest theatrical releases.
Aside from the iconic poster displays, they also provided the opportunity to showcase what’s coming next to the cinema in a way
that stands out.

To design, develop and manufacture a large format modular solution to hold printed media on the trackside of the London Underground.
The solution had to work with the varying dimensions of the London Underground tunnels, that date back 160 years, and had to be suitable for varying substrates whilst complying with the stringent network safety regulations.
Our solution lay in the collaborative approach between our creative design team and our Engineering/Development teams, along with the London Underground. This was essential on such a technical project to ensure the strict safety regulations are met, whilst not compromising the premium appearance. The blue-sky approach of all teams resulted in a modular solution that could cover the whole cross trackside wall of a tube station and provided a premium look and feel. The Media Wall can accommodate printed dry posted media or act as a canvas for digital projection and can be utilised in any tunnel regardless of substrates or dimensions. Accommodating the variations in dimensions of these Victorian built tunnels was critical to the project’s success and crucial to both passenger and staff safety and it was essential that tunnel measurements were 100% accurate. We used “Bogeys” (robotic laser scanners that scan the whole tunnel) to travel along the track to measure the curvature of the tunnel and to report any inconsistencies in surface structure. This data was then translated by our Development and Engineering teams who produced a Bespoke Media Wall solution for every platform tunnel in the station.
