This theater was located at 1607 Main street in the Practorian Building.
It was in operation in 1909, and as late as 1911.

The Empire Theater opened March 22, 1909 at the corner of Main and Stone streets with seating for 968 patrons. C.B. Harris' Empire Theater Company owned the place and it was built for popular plays and Harris termed it a “moderate priced house”. It opened with the plya, “The Belle of Richmond.” The owners said that the theater would make it safe for one’s wife or daughter to attend at all times.
