1954 photo as the Sanders added via Raymond Storey.
Lobby photo added credit New Britain Public Library.
Early 20s photo added, credit UT Rio Grande Valley’s Special Collections, via the Traces Of Texas Facebook page. Note the Empire marquee is blank, but there are film posters outside of the entrance. Not knowing the years of operation, I would say the photo is more likely in the teens, given the automobiles. Which were more enclosed by the mid 20s.

In the Photos Section I just posted a Vista Theatre poster promoting the Bela Lugosi In-Person screening of “Dracula”.
December 8 was a Monday in 1947, as the poster indicates.
So that confirms the above query about the date.
Also on the poster Theatre is spelled with an “re” and not an “er”.
Contrary to all other sources and their website.
So possibly the printer’s interpretation.
