The Imperial Theatre in the downtown area of Saint John, New Brunswick is a historic building that was designed by an architect from Philadelphia and construction began in 1912. The doors to the Imperial Theatre were officially opened in September, 1913 and was home to the vaudeville shows, eventually becoming a cinema just like many of the places that once hosted vaudeville entertainment.

By 1957, a church group bought the building for their meetings until the year of 1982. A deal was then made to purchase it with a $1.00 down and a $1 million dollar option to buy it within a year's time. Residents of Saint John, New Brunswick contributed a majority of the funds and over $1 million dollars was raised making the community of Saint John very proud of their accomplishment and theatre.

Reconstruction to the Imperial Theatre needed to be done and it was all restored to its original decor as it was when it was completed in 1913. ... continue below the picture...
