An early theatre designed by Jacksonville architect Roy A. Benjamin, the Imperial Theatre was located on Jacksonville’s “Great White Way”, Forsyth Street (along with the Florida Theatre and Palace Theatre, both designed by Benjamin as well).
With a fairly elegant Neo-Georgian style facade, the interior of the Imperial Theatre was not quite as ornate as the exterior. The Imperial Theatre had nearly 1,000 seats. By 1941 the Imperial Theatre was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary E.J. Sparks. The Imperial Theatre closed in the mid-1950’s and was razed in 1956, along with the nearby Palace Theatre, and today a parking garage is located on the site of both theatres.
