The Imperial Theatre was opened by the West Coast Theatres chain on October 12, 1928 with Buster Keaton in “The Cameraman” plus vaudeville on the stage. The Wurlitzer organ was opened by organist Hazel Early. Very opulent with plush red carpeting, murals on the walls, ornate fixtures, grand balcony, and an elegant staircase. The theatre competed with the less grand, yet still impressive, Crest Theatre located around the corner.
The Fox Theatre was closed in 1999 and was destroyed by fire in 2001.
