Opened in the late-1930’s the Imperial Theatre had seating listed at 660. They didn’t list a closing date for the theatre but stated that the theatre was still in operation during the mid-1950’s. The building is now used for retail.

There is an Imperial Theater listed in 1930 and 1935 for Marianna, Arkansas with 400 seats. No address is given so I don’t know if it’s this theater or an earlier Imperial Theater.

Here’s a change from the usual conflagrations Boxoffice was so fond of reporting. The headline in the September 25, 1972, issue read “Rain Storm Causes Roof Of Theatre to Cave In.” The item reported that the Imperial Theatre, which had suffered the disaster the previous month, had been dark since December, 1971.
