The 1,474-seat Imperial Theatre opened on September 13, 1913. All seating was on a single level. It was equipped with a Kimball 2 manual 11 ranks organ. By 1920, it was operated by Stanley-Warner Theatres, who remodeled in 1930. The Kimball organ was in use until the late-1930’s. The Imperial Theatre was closed by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Inc. on November 4, 1951 with Lawrence Tierney in “The Hoodlum” & Robert Montgomery in “Texas Rangers”. It was gutted internally the floor was levelled to become a catering hall, later operating as a roller skating rink. It was later used for storage.
The building still stands in 2019 but not in use, and is fast deteriorating.
