The Acme was one of several Maine theaters owned and/or operated in the early 20th century by Wilbor A. Shea, who had houses at Eastport, Lubec, Calais, and Pembroke.

The usually reliable Cinemadata project provides this page about the Acme Theatre, but some of the information on the page apparently conflates the Acme with another Eastport theater, the Memorial Opera House, which was also operated by Wilbor Shea. The Memorial Opera House burned down in 1913.
