From Boxoffice magazine, January 1938:

EMPORIUM, Pa.-Interior alterations are underway at the Emporium Theater and a complete new front will be installed. The old opera house-type balcony is being removed and is being replaced by a modern balcony. Also being installed are a new steam heating system, new plumbing and plumbing fixtures, new electric wiring, new carpets and new drapes.

Structural glass or porcelain ornament blocks will be installed in building a new theater front, according to Hyde Murphy Co. of Ridgeway, general contractors. Estimated cost of the renovation of the theater, owned by A.E. Andrews, is $20,000. Alfred E. Marks, Pittsburgh architect, furnished plans for the remodeling.
