Almira Theater

The Almira Theatre was opened in 1927. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer theatre organ that was originally installed in the Almira Theatre on 29th August 1927. It was a 2 manual, 7 ranks instrument.

The organ was transferred from here and installed into the Rex Cinema/ABC, Stratford, London, England, UK on 15th September 1934.

The Almira Theatre was closed in 1950.

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

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

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.

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.
