The Empire Theatre, located next to the Rivoli Theatre on N. St. Clair Street, opened in 1901 as a vaudeville and stock company theatre. By 1904, it was a burlesque theatre, and gained a notorious reputation.
After 1919, it became a movie theatre and was renamed Palace Theatre. In 1925 it was equipped with a Marr & Colton 2 manual 11 ranks organ. It closed in 1968, and both it and the Rivoli Theatre were both razed a year later.
