The Empire Theatre opened in 1900 as the first house in Cleveland built specifically for vaudeville. Within a few years it had been converted into a burlesque theater. I’ve found references to the Empire operating as a burlesque house as late as 1923, but the building was most likely demolished in 1925, the year construction began on the Ohio Bell Building (now the AT&T Huron Road Building) which now occupies the theater’s site.

I’ve been unable to discover if the Empire Theatre ever showed movies, but IMDb says that it was in one.
