The Allison Theater was listed in the Orange County directory from 1925-1931 and mapped by the Sanborn Insurance Company in 1928. However advertisements in the Newport-Balboa News date the theater back to 1923.

The Allison Theater may have closed because the nearby Ritz Theatre on the peninsula converted to all-talkies on January 31, 1930.
