The Alan Theatre was operated by Charles Carter. Today, the theatre is owned by Burning Man.

In the 1930's, the C&S Store was at that location.

Lou Rugani wrote: "'March 18, 1952: Mr. and Mrs. Daniel C. Davis, operators of the Alan theater, have begun remodeling the building and plan to show an additional movie each week.' (The theatre was owned by Charles Carter, the justice of the peace.)"
