The Empress Theatre opened in 1916 originally as a Burlesque show for the local miners at Kennecott. In 1917 it began showing silent movies. The theater remained open as a movie theater through at least 1930.
Efforts to restore the threatre began in 1978 though it was not until 2006 when the Oquirrh Hills Performing Arts Alliance leased the Empress Theatre building and continues renovation of the historic structure. The theatre reopened on 4 November 2006.
