The Empire Theatre was, “one of the handsomest and costliest and most luxuriously appointed theatres in the state”. It was designed by architects J. B. McElfatrick and Sons, N.Y.

Opened as the Empire Theatre in 1902 with vaudeville, burlesque and stock theatre and later motion pictures. It was renamed the Rialto Theatre in 1928 and closed in 1958.

This movie theatre is mentioned in a book entitled “The Jimmy Roselli Story”. Jimmy Roselli and Frank Sinatra were from the same town and lived on the same street. Sinatra was 10 years older than Roselli.
