According to the Anniston City Directory, the Cameo was also known as the Theato/Theotorium between 1913 and 1924, and the Rialto between 1925 and 1939. Although the original building still stands, there is little evidence of it ever being a theatre.

It’s still the same gift shop that was seen in the 2006 photo.
