Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

On December 5, 1925, the Reno Evening Gazette advertised the opening of the Empire Theatre. The Sanborn Insurance Maps of 1918 show a Chinese laundry previously at the location. The Empire Theatre was programming vaudeville and movies when it disappeared from the Gazette listings in November of 1927.

In February of 1928 it was reported that the theater had been sold and would be remodeled into stores. A Sanborn Map from 1928 shows a furniture store at the location.
