Empire Theater, Morris, IL

Open from at least 1909, the Empire Theater was located on the second floor of a building which occupied the corner of Liberty and Washington Streets. It was open until at least 1919, when a Morris newspaper mentions that a basketball game took place at the theater. A Hallmark store and bank are currently located in the building that once housed the Empire Theater.
