Growing up in Almont in the 1970s and early 80s, I have seen several films here. Even then, most of these were second-run or kids' movies, often interrupted by the seemingly constant projection problems. The theatre was already clearly in decline, but its sleek, once-beautiful mid-century modern design was still in evidence. Almont’s theatre closed sometime in either the late 1970s or very early 1980s, after which it went through several reincarnations that I understand brought a great deal of “redesign.” It still stands, empty and without its sleek marquee; I, for one, would love to see it restored to the glory I always imagined it possessed before my time, but it seems unlikely.

Found another Tina Slover review,“WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO AUNT ALICE?” It played the Almont from Friday-Sunday,stating,“the audience thought it was boring,They couldn’t keep track of the story,It was not as good as we played it up to be”.Ruth Gordon stars.
