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.

Venues that played at the Empress in the last year included acrobats, independent films, singers, tribute bands, etc. There is plenty of parking and the venue is handicap accessible. The theater has about 100 seats on the main floor and possibly 200 seats in the...More

The venue was nice and intimate. There was not a bad view from our vantage point. We had tickets before the show and that made it a bit faster to get into the theatre. Parking was a breeze and it was just across the street....More
