Previous Names: Leo's Empire Theater
Located in the Port Richmond district of Staten Island. The Empire Theater was built in 1916 and closed in 1978. Two castle-like spires are located atop the theater.
Before its demise, it resorted to showing adult films, much to the dislike of the neighboring residents.
Farrell Lumber has owned the building since 1978 and used it for their supplies until moving out in March 2009. The marquee still hangs outside of the building and reads ‘FARRELL’. The projection room still exists.
