102 years old and loving it. The minute you step into the lobby of the Empress Theatre in Fort Macleod you know you re in a really special place. The building exudes charm and wears its history like a gilded crown.
The speakers above the arena are one of the few indications that you re still in the 21 st century. Music fills the air a soundtrack of old timey tunes with military flair that lend an aura of pomp and circumstance to the occasion.
On a vast stretch of wind swept prairie just 15 minutes northwest of Fort Macleod, is a sandstone escarpment with a dramatic history that goes back more than 6 000 years.
