I forgot to mention, in the website, it shows the theater to be in Oakland, and that is not correct.

The only theater I remember in Oakley was the Oakley Theater, located right on the highway. It used to show spanish movies. It was a long and skinny theater, when you first saw it, it looked like a warehouse of some kind. The name of the Oakley was clearly painted on back of the building. There is a photo of it on the American Classic Images site. Was this theater the same as the Empire?

The Reason the Empire was torn down Was it was made of Brick, and Almost Falling Down, A Good Storm would have Finished the Job.
