This movie closed in 1934 and the building was converted into offices and apartments. That is what it is today. It is a couple blocks off Duke of Gloucester Street. The New Imperial was built in 1932 as a result of being forced to move due to restoration in Colonial Williamsburg. It closed in 1934 because the area was unable to sustain two theaters – with the other theater being the Williamsburg Theater in the restored area. When it closed, it was converted into stores on the ground floor and offices, apartments and suites in the upstairs.

The only theater in Colonial Williamsburg is the Kimball that use to be the Williamsburg Theater. There is no Imperial presently in Williamsburg.

One of the photos in the archives is dated 1928.

It would be helpful if CT had an exact address, more photos, both inside and out, and more info.
