Nice spot in Vallejo to take in a show....we saw an Elton John Tribute there, and tonight a concert by Mindi Abair. Nice and comfortable setting, with any seat in the house being ok. A place for Vallejo to hold their hat.

Lovely historic theater in historic Vallejo. Ornate and well maintained for all sorts of events. Check it out on Sunday’s for Northgate Church services and for the music groups during the month.

I photograph concerts for a living, and the Empress is a gem. Great big stage, great lights, and a simply amazing, state-of-the-art sound system. The smaller halls off the main theatre are perfect for receptions, art exhibits, and vending. The HD video projection system for...More
