Wood is wood, even if it is decaying. And the beauty this house still posses is remarkable. However, a little fixer upper is in order.

Some see broken glass, damaged wood, and peeling paint. I see a lovely old chattel house that has gone by the wayside, dilapidated with age.

This beautiful limestone and brick building, The Empire Theater, was built in 1922 by a group of investors. The climate at the time dictated that the theater could not only afford to accommodate theatrical performances. Hence, some vaudeville acts and shot screen pieces were done. In the end films won out over the ever decreasing theatrical shows.

In the 1940s it was owned by The British Colonial Film Exchange, Ltd. Today it is in disrepair and it slated by the government to be restored to it glory and be the home for the National Company for Performing Arts.

You can also read an article the Barbados Nation Newspaper did on the Empire Theatre.
