Acme Theatre, Eastport, Maine

A Down East theatre decorated for the Holidays.


Moving Picture World, February 19, 1910:


“The above photograph is enough to give one the chills, and we would imagine that the audience would have to huddle close together to keep from freezing.

“But the manager tells us that the place is not such a ‘frost’ as it looks and is playing to good business. It is of interest to mention that this is the most eastern theater in the United States.”
