Empire Pictures began screening regularly at the Princess Pavilion in 1906, another venue which was also used as a skating rink. In 1911, West'(managed in Perth by by Thomas Coombe) announced their intention to build on this site the state’s first purpose-built cinema in a rural area – the Empire Theatre, Albany.
The Empire Theatre opened on 31st October 1912. THe Empire Theatre closed on 25th September 1963 with “Hatari!”. The theatre building was later used as a skating rink, a youth amusement centre, a live theatre, and a nightclub. The theatre building is now a jewellery store(MB – Mark Blyth Fine jewelery)–(main part of building) and a recycled store(Electic Ladyland) on the corner.
