The New Empire Theatre, built in 1908, was mentioned in the Montana Standard as being the second Empire Theatre in Butte. The first Empire Theatre, perhaps just a vaudeville house, was on Main Street.

The New Empire Theatre was owned by the Montana Amusement Co. and was listed on the Sanborn Insurance Maps of 1916 as a movies and vaudeville house. By 1928 the Barclay Motor Company occupied the location, and by 1950 the Wilson Motor Company.
