Leicester Square is set to be visited by a whole host of stars this winter with an array of blockbusters premiering at the world-famous cinemas.

Take a seat in The Imperial this season and you’re likely to spot the celebrities as they arrive at the square before heading down the red carpet.

Both highly-anticipated films, Matrix 4 and Spider-Man: No Way Home will have premieres here in the capital.

If you pop by the pub tomorrow (November 18) you could spot some of the star-studded cast of the new psychological drama, The Lost Daughter.

The film features huge names like Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson and Peter Sarsgaard. It’s also directed by the fantastic Maggie Gyllenhaal.

There’s sure to be all sorts of celebrities attending the premiere and it could be an unforgettable evening of sightings.

And afterwards, there may even be stars wanting to just grab a more low-key drink instead of attending an after party.

General Manager of The Imperial at Greene King, Mark Murphy, said: “I wouldn’t want to name drop about the number of stars that we’ve served at our pub, but we’re regularly filled with celebrities who enjoy our totally relaxed atmosphere and high-quality food and drink.

“One of the UK’s most famous supermodels even drops in from time-to-time and our team is always happy to serve up one of her favourite cocktails which isn’t on our menu.””
