Notes:

This is yet another old theater in Alma. It competed directly with the Idlehour and the Strand. I had thought it was the same as one of the other 2 but ads from the newspaper tell me they were indeed separate and even competed with each other over the years.

This theater also operated under the Vaudette, Genesta, Fishbeck, Liberty and maybe others. This location was *not* converted from the old opera house. For now this entry is a placeholder for the "other" theater besides the Strand and Idlehour. I have added a mention of the Dreamland below until I find out more about it.
