News About This Theater
- Feb 20, 2007 — Southtown facade restoration
Opened as the Empress Theatre February 7, 1915, and renamed the South Town Theatre July 15, 1937 after it was remodelled in an Art Deco style. The South Town Theatre closed in 1959 as a movie house.
It, however, has been wonderfully maintained, and its gorgeous Streamline Moderne marquee, which still says “South Town”, now advertises the stained glass studio now housed inside.
