Disney has announced that the new Searchlight Pictures film, “Empire Of Light” is coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Wednesday, 1st March 2023.
From Academy Award-winning director and writer Sam Mendes, “Empire of Light” is a moving drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times. Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it follows Hilary, a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen, a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship, and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
Because the film had a slightly different release schedule internationally, the film was added to Disney+ in Canada and on HBO Max in the US last month.
