Built in 1916, this small theatre is one of the oldest surviving movie theatres in all of New England.
In 1956, it was gutted and converted into a grocery store, but by the early-1990’s, it was long vacant, and little more than a shell remained.
In 1992, the Northeast Historic Film group purchased the ruined theatre and rebuilt the main auditorium to the plans of architectural firm Thomas Bakalars Architects, and renovated the second floor for a film library and study center.
The Alamo Theatre currently screens a varied mix of film, from silents, classics, foreign and current releases and is open every weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights and Sunday matinees).
