The Almo Theatre was opened in 1924. My great aunt owned it in the 1930’s/1940’s (Bell Jensen) and it was owned by the Lilquist family after that, until it closed in the 1980’s. A very small theatre with a single, center aisle. There was a little balcony that had a lily pond with fountain in the 1970’s (unsure if it was original). You had to be 18 to sit in the balcony. The lobby was tiny with restrooms, a small snack bar and the very narrow, steep staircase to the balcony. The exterior had been updated, probably in the 1960’s, with stone veneer.
The Almo Theatre closed January 15, 1987. It was renovated for use as a dress shop. The exterior stucco was restored and original second floor windows were opened up. The interior was completely gutted. The building is became an antique shop and by 2017 was a jewelry store.
