Rochester, Minnesota, by Ted St Mane, says that the Empress Theatre was built in 1914, closed in 1956, and the building was demolished on December 31, 1965. There’s a photo at the bottom of page 105 (Google Books preview.)

The finding aid to the Liebenberg & Kaplan papers indicates that the firm worked on the Empress three times: in 1931, 1935, and 1951.
