An early theater designed by Jacksonville architect Roy A. Benjamin, the Imperial was located on Jacksonville’s “Great White Way”, Forsyth Street (along with the Florida and Palace Theatres, both designed by Benjamin as well).
With a fairly elegant neo-Georgian style facade, the interior of the Imperial was not quite as ornate as the exterior. The Imperial sat nearly 1000. The theater closed in the mid-50s and was razed in 1956, along with the nearby Palace, and today a parking garage is located on the site of both theaters.
