Became the State Theatre in 1928. No longer listed in 1930.

Here is a photo showing the Alhambra Theatre, Duluth, ca.1928, from the Minnesota Digital Library.

Two more photos of the Alhambra Theatre, these dated 1913:

The auditorium

The front

The text with these gives the address as 5715 Grand Avenue. I don’t know if that’s a mistake or if Central Avenue was actually called Grand Avenue in 1913.

Joe, there is a 5715 Grand Ave., but the building at 321 N. Central Ave. matches the former Alhambra Theatre building.

Whoever wrote the text with those photos must have confused the Alhambra with the Doric Theatre.
