The Empire Theatre opened its doors on December 29, 1910 its name was due to its adjacent location to a hotel of the same name. It opened with a production of Glibert & Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore". It began life as a live stage venue, showcasing the likes of Harry Lauder, Sophie Tucker and Eva Tanguay. In 1914 it was equipped to screen films, which were presented when there was no stage show or as part of the programme. However, after its sale in 1930, the Victory Theatre was transformed into a full-time motion picture house. It was closed by Odeon Theatre (Canada) Ltd. sometime in the mid-1950’s.
