On July 21st, 2015 I sat in the gallery observing a meeting of the Parliament of Barbados. At one point while they were debating the manner in which the history of the country should be presented, a member said the Empire Theatre should be preserved considering its role in the Uprising of 1937.

I Googled and found this article from 2012 saying the Empire was the first place attacked and should therefore be a museum for the riots:
