Information for this tour was contributed by Michael J Rouillier.

The Algy was a cool neighborhood single screen theatre with the classic 1940s design for the interior and exterior.

Closed since at least the 1950s. Now used by a glass blowing business "Rosetree Glass Studio." I personally toured the closed theatre before the glass blowers took over the property. It was the cool classic "nabe" from the late 1940s. The vintage projection booth has been kept.
