Built in 1911, the Empress Theatre was a large 1,000 seat, two-tiered theatre 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 Theatre, Vallejo Theatre, Senator Theatre and from 1952 when it was taken over by Syufy Enterprises and renamed Crest Theatre. In 1978 it was renamed the Empress Theatre when it was purchased by William Elliott. The theatre 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.
