I have an original Movie Poster from 1948 of “One Sunday Aftertoon” with Dennis Morgan, Dorothy Malone, Don DeFore and Janis Paige by Warner Bros. It is a 14x22" Poster in good condition. It has printed in black on the top “Albany Alo Theatre” with the days Sun, Mon, Tue and dates of May 15, 16, 17. Can anyone tell me if there is a Market for Movie Posters this old, how much it would be worth and where could it be Marketed. Anyone with any information would be appreciated.
Thank You,

The finding aid for the Liebenberg & Kaplan papers at the University of Minnesota Library lists a theater project at Albany, but it is undated. The name Alo does not appear anywhere in the finding aid.

I’m pretty sure that the Alo Theatre is the small building with a marquee seen in this photo of Railroad Avenue dated 1957. It looks like the name might be on the small vertical sign at the center of the marquee.

The building, which probably didn’t start out as a theater, is still standing and is occupied by a bar called The Well Saloon. The address is 411 Railroad Avenue.

Internet search has unearthed another house called the Alo Theatre, this one in Pipestone, Minnesota. Perhaps it was under the same ownership as the Albany house.
