No comment because The Empress was a vaudeville house and later a burlesque venue called The Gaiety, but NEVER a FILM THEATER!!!!!

With a backhoe parked at its rear wall, can demolition be far away? The large Weil Thoman moving company has removed its numerous vans and itself from this property .

Manager in 1929 was Elmer A. Shard, it seated 750 patrons.Mr. Shard probably owned the Shard Th. later in the decade.

Hello Again Joe, I can’t believe that Universal Studios tore down the 1925 soundstage#28 which held the interior set of the Paris Opera House from the Lon Chaney silent “Phantom Of The Opera”. The destruction took place in Sept. of 2014. I’m so saddened by this. Until soon,Hank

Mr Frank E. Lanius of Covington,Kentucky taught Marcus Loew what a nickelodeon was in the early 1900’s, Loew went on to own 400 theaters across the country. Mr. McMahon worked as a projectionist in Covington as well. Later Isaac McMahon went into Real Estate.

This is our lone survivor of all the downtown movie theaters, and it has been converted to a live venue. That said, I’m glad it has been saved for Shakespeare fans!

Removal of the splendid Albee Theatre on fifth street was Cincinnati’s most stupid theater loss.

When the Wurlitzer Organ arrived at the Albee theater in 1927 it was painted WHITE, but when it was moved to the Emery Th. in the 1970’s it was returned to its original factory color which was ebony BLACK.
