Absolutely awesome atmosphere and venue! Excellent theater seating. Not a bad seat in the house! Live band with dance floor right in front of the stage! The Empress is beautiful and definitely adds to the quality of life in Solano County!

Best music every Wednesday night at the Empress - amazing musicians, awesome sound system, cover only $9, dancing, very friendly crowd and a bar. Plus, the theater itself is just beautiful. If you find yourself in Vallejo on a Wednesday night, don't miss it!

Very cool historical theatre & very comfortable with great dance floor. I lost my cell phone there & the janitor had it waiting for me on New Years Day. I would love to go back again soon - beautiful!

Weekends only. The Empress is a beautiful old theater in downtown Vallejo. The playbill is eclectic...could be live performances by bands, a month of themed movies (ie Horror Month) or classics from the Bogart/Cooper era...even Hollywood musicals.

This is a gem right in the middle of downtown Vallejo. One of the few remaining movie palaces. The ceiling is beautifully restored and lighted in art deco style. There are now films and musical performances weekly at this venue so don't miss it when you are touring Vallejo.
