Renovations are finally underway. The cinema is now called Sanctuary Cinema. Read articles at https://www.thealpenanews.com/news/local-news/2022/07/alpena-welcomes-the-sanctuary-cinema-to-town/ and http://www.wbkb11.com/alpena-breaks-ground-on-new-movie-theater-coming-downtown

The theater is not only being renovated, it will be getting a new name, the Fremont Theatre. A web page in its early stages as I type this is at https://alpenamarc.com/fremont/

It must have been a terrible place to catch a flick.Most theatres built in department stores are.

J.C. Penney moved out of the building in 1983 and the theater opened in 1987.
