Built in 1911, the Empress Theatre was a large 1,000 seat, two-tiered theater with gold-leafed clouds on the ceiling, red velvet seats and a pipe organ. It has been remodeled several times over the years and has been known as the Republic, Vallejo, Senator and Crest names before being renamed the Empress Theatre in 1978 when it was purchased by William Elliott. The theater closed sometime around 1989 for seismic retrofitting, etc. and never reopened.
The Empress Theatre was later purchased by Robert Litwin and Mel Gomez, then restored and reopened.
