The Empress Theatre is operated and maintained by the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation, Inc, a non-profit public benefit corporation. A nearly 100-year-old structure, the Empress is a jewel in Vallejo’s downtown, but it is also a tremendously costly structure to operate and maintain. And, unlike other similar civic arts centers in the Bay Area, the Empress Theatre receives no funding from the City or County. All funding must be earned through ticket sales or raised through fundraising efforts. Private sponsors are essential partners. Your sponsorship will help ensure that the Empress Theatre remains Vallejo’s Center for Arts and Entertainment for the next 100 years.
