There is a reference in NY Times archives to a fire at the Albert on November 23, 1907 that caused damage of $100,000.

I only saw the preview. Here is a shot of an old sign on the side of the Albert:

Scroll down to Nov. 23, 1907, it looks like that theater building collapsed after the fire, so probably a different building:

I’ll bet their premiums went up.

In the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide, there are 2 theatres listed for Berlin NH, the Clement Opera House with 1200 seats and the Whitney Opera House with 800 seats. Unfortunately, there are no street addresses listed in this guide. I believe that Berlin was a busy papermill and forest products town.

My web site has postcard pictures of the second Albert Theatre, as well as other theatres in Berlin, NH.

The Wurlitzer Organ is still in the city, housed at the Berlin Middle School.

In the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac, the Albert in Berlin, along with the Princess Th. and the Strand Th. there, were listed as part of the Maine and New Hampshire Theatres Co. of Boston MA.
