The Empress Theatre
Empress Theatre was designated Vallejo Landmark #17. A year later, the Oakland Hills firestorm destroys 3,469 homes and apartments.
2000 - 2003
The building changed hands several times between 2000 and 2003. The intervening ownership groups were Rick Sylvain and Brad Peck and subsequently Robert Litwin and Mel Gomez. Triad Communities then purchased the theatre for redevelopment in partnership with the City of Vallejo and the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation, Inc.
