Since at least 1941, this was one of the three nabes that once lined West Broadway on Minneapolis near North side. Like so many cinemas it finished its days as a porn house closing in the mid-1970’s.

I live about 4 blocks from where the Empress was, I was tearing out a wall and found a poster from the Empress advertising a movie released in 1922 called REPORTED MISSING starring OWEN MOORE and PAULINE GARON.
