The renovation of the Alamo Theatre for Northeast Historic Film was designed by Boston architect Thomas Bakalars. Bakalars was a member of the Board of Directors of NHF. The Winter, 2001, issue of the organization’s newsletter, Moving Image Review, featured an article about the project (PDF here.) A digitized archive of the newsletters from Winter, 1988, through Winter, 2007, is also available here from the Internet Archive and Open Library.

The firm Thomas Bakalars Architects has designed numerous theaters, including at least two for Hoyts.

While driving through on vacation, we stopped at the Alamo and Executive Director David Weiss and his wonderful staff spent quite a bit of their time giving us a tour of the theater and the Northeast Historic Films archives. Please try to support their dedication and passion if you can. Jerry

I passed by twice last week while on vacation and the museum was not open. Movies are still showing but they appear to be first run only.

If Northeast Historic Film is located in the Alamo Theater then the address should be 85 Main Street which is the address given on their website. Good old trusty Google will return both addresses for this theater.

If you enter www.alamotheatre.org you get this site http://www.oldfilm.org/ which as karan pointed out in 2006 owns the theater.

Is the address 85 Main or 379 Main? The theater website says 85. Additionally, the Bittersweet Gift Shop seen in the 6/4/08 photo is at 81 Main.

The Alamo Theatre seated 350 people when it was a theatre in the 50’s.
