I briefly saw the exterior of the building which was pretty amazing but, didn’t have a chance to peek inside and see the interior but, it looks as if it must be a pretty unique theater.

I’m assuming the above writer meant The Imperial stopped showing Vaudeville shows entirely by 1929, as the theatre was certainly showing flickers earlier than 1929, as this Saint-John newspaper advertises Buster Keaton’s “Three Ages” for January 4, 1924.

The console of the theatre’s organ, a Style D Wurlitzer (2 manuals, 6 ranks of pipes) is in the basement of the theatre.
