Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

According to the City Diectory the Almo Theatre was open in 1914 and owned by J.L. Arrington. When mapping it automatically bounces to SE Main Street so there have evidently have been some name changes on the streets. No closing date found.

Any additional information on the Almo Theatre would be appreciated.

The Almo Theatre did not last very long. It is listed in the 1914-1915 city directory, and it is mentioned a few times in The Moving Picture World in 1916, but it does not appear in the 1920 city directory. The 1920 directory lists only two theaters in Rocky Mount: the Palace, at 228 S. Main (this address was later changed to 238 Main SW) and the Opera House at 143 N. Main. Because some addresses on Main Street were shifted a bit sometime during the 1920s, it’s possible that the modern address of the Almo’s building would be different than the 210 N. listed in the 1914 directory.
