The Morrison opened during the 20s, and was demolished in the mid-70s. Additional information on this theater would be appreciated.

Alliance Ohio is a college town and should have a single screen theatre! I wonder if the former theatre location is now another parking lot?

There were other theatres in the Town of Alliance in 1950.

Columbia Theatre, 436 E. Columbia Street 782 seats
Mt. Union Theatre, 1745 S. Union Avenue 932 seats
Strand Theatre, 239 E. Main Street 632 seats

Having recently visited Alliance Ohio these above theatres including the Morrison are gone, except for the art deco Mt. Union Theatre which still remains and is near the college.

I recently acquired an original lobby card from the Morrison of a Jack Benny movie from 1941. I had no idea at the time I bought it that the Morrison was a theater in Alliance. I bought another one which was printed in Cleveland for the Mount Union Theater. I figured I’d better try to preserve a little something of the wonderful old gem. Too bad the college couldn’t stand to hold out a little longer before doing away with the building being used as a theater. At least they haven’t turned it into a parking lot for white vans…yet.
