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.

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.

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