The original Empire Theater was constructed between 1915-1916 and was owned and operated by D.J. Sandie. The "Wonderland Theatre" was located on the second floor. The attached building held the Canadian Imperial Bank and Kinches Menswear, and the Masonic Lodge.

When the original theater was deemed too small construction began on a larger more modern theater that would hold 500 people. The building was also used for traveling shows and church group plays.
