The Alice Theatre, named after the Nichols' family's daughter Alice Mildred Nichols, was established by Pat Meadows in 1935. The Theatre kicked off its opening week on June 17 with a showing of "Happiness Ahead" starring Dick Powell and Josephine Hutchinson. The original seating capacity was 360! 

 

Unfortunately, the theater closed in 1988 due to a lease dispute. The hotel and restaurant closed the following year in 1989. At one point, a garment factory was opened in the basement. The building went up for sale in July 2012. The owner had rejected at least three offers and had scheduled the building for demolition. 

 

Fortunately, It was purchased in August 2021 by Robert and Mandi McKinzie to be restored to its former glory!
