Called the East End Theatre from 1893-1901, it may have been a legitimate theater, at least in the early years. It became the Empire from 1901-21, the Pershing from 1921-26 and then reverted to East End from 1926-27.

Because no even-numbered addresses have existed for decades on Collins Avenue, a major East Liberty neighborhood street, the property was almost certainly surrendered to Penn Circle, a famously disastrous miscalculation in urban redevelopment.
