Imperial Theatre exterior

The Imperial Theatre was opened on February 4, 1955 with Doris Day in "Young at Heart". It was a modern looking building, but rather plain both externally and internally. All seating was on a single floor.

The Imperial Theatre was operated by Newman Theatres and was closed around 1969.
