The Allen Theatre was built on the site of the former Allen Opera House that was destroyed by fire in 1922. The first talkies were played at the Allen Theatre in 1937 and they installed their first concession stand in the Allen Theatre in 1947.
The two story building was in a cream color with decorative blocks running down the front . A triangular-shaped marquee with “Allen” on each side. A ton of neon runs all over the marquee. The Allen Theatre closed in the 1970’s, when the Allen Theatres chain started acquiring other theatres and building multi-screen theatres of their own.
