The Fort Theatre in downtown Kearney, Nebraska opened September 21, 1914 as the Empress Theatre. The main floor and the balcony seated 654. Depending on the seats admission was 5 cents, 10 cents or 15 cents for loge seats.
The name was changed to the Fort Theatre sometime in 1941 when ownership changed hands and some alterations were made to the plans of architect Edward J. Sessinghaus. Seating was reduced to 450 with the addition of double-wide love seats at the ends of every other row. These seats allowed two people to sit together, plus they offset each row so that you were never looking into the back of someone’s head.
The Fort Theatre ceased operation in September of 1993. The building is now home to Fort Theatre Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentists.
