Notes:

According to the Gratiot County Players web site (which is the group that runs the Strand in Alma), this theater was located in the building the flower shop operates in now. It was also known as the Alma Theater.

1900's newspaper articles indicate the Strand is the replacement for this theater as they shared management but not facilities. This theater was more akin to a nickelodeon style house whereas the Strand was a bonafide movie house built at an expense of 60-100 thousand dollars.
