W. 2nd Street,
No one has favorited this theater yet
A photograph of Chico’s 2nd Street taken ca.1940 reveals that the Empire Theatre was located almost directly opposite the El Rey Theatre (then known as the American Theatre), which still exists. The Empire’s building appeared to be fairly old at that time and is listed in the 1941 and 1943 editions of Film Daily Yearbook as ‘Closed’, but part of the T & D Jr. Enterprises chain. By the late-1950’s, it had been demolished.
Further information about the Empire Theatre would be appreciated.
