The Almira DID close in 1950, and was taken over by a church. The front of the building was severely damaged by the West Side tornado of June 8, 1953, after which it was rebuilt in its present form.

I tried to find an image of the Almira in the day but couldn’t. Oddly enough I could find pictures of the organ which was sent to England and the theatre into which it was subsequently installed.

I remember going to the Saturday Matinees for a nickle during WW II. The popcorn cost more.

Does anyone have any photos of the inside currently, or historically? Also historical outside photos?

The Almira was located a block off Loraine Ave, the main street of Cleveland’s west side. Many theaters were located on Lorain. I was never in the building, however as a child in the 50’s I remember seeing it as I would ride by on the bus to downtown. It closed in the early 1950’s, maybe 53 or 54. It was converted into a church. When I returned to Cleveland in 2003, I drove past the building and found that the front end had been completely rebuilt and there is no longer on outward evidents of the theatre. It is still being used as a church.
