Here's a photo of the Almont Theatre at 219 S. Main Street in Almont Township, Michigan. The 35mm slide was shot by my Grandfather A.S. "Al" Johnson in June 1948. This theater isn't listed in the Johnson Construction Co. theater jobs that Al's son A.S. Johnson Jr. compiled in the early 2000's, but the front of the theater resembles several other theaters that Al built or remodeled during that era.

The image shows two sets of red "art moderne" style double doors with large half-round glass, which were a common feature of several theaters built or remodeled by Johnson Construction Co. in the 1940's and 50's. Family lore refers to them as "Johnson Doors."
