I’m wondering if this was an aka for the Lamp Theater on Main Street, given the obvious semantic connection.

The Aladdin and The Lamp were actually “sister” theaters for awhile. I believe the Aladdin was the first and was located in the same block as the liquor store.

The Lamp gained it’s name from a contest held to name the theatre when it was opening. The winning entrant came up with the name saying some thing like, because we have the Aladdin, now we need a Lamp. So, that is the connection between the two theaters. There is a link to a news story on the Lamp’s page that tells this story.
