The Empire was Nebraska City’s first dedicated movie theatre and was located at Central Avenue and 9th Street. It was opened in 1907 by Schnitzer and Wallen. 250 wooden chairs were nailed together. The program was changed three times a week. There was a Saturday matinee but no Sunday performances because of the Blue Laws. Admission was 5 & 10 cents.
During the summer movies were show in an Air Dome.
It was later remodeled and rebranded as the 400-seat Paramount Theatre. It burnt down around 1940-50.
