Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Empire Theatre opened in 1922 as a live theatre and first run motion picture theatre. In the mid-1940’s, it was owned by the British Colonial Film Exchange, Ltd.

It has been closed since around 1975 and has slowly become derelict, but plans in 2003 had been submitted to restore and renovate the theatre into a home for the national company for performing arts.
