The Alliance Theater building began as the Charter Hotel in 1903 and became a theater in 1938. Theater employees have reported seeing shadowy figures, hearing footsteps running down the aisles, and feeling uneasy. According to owner Gerald Bullard, when these phenomena appear, "It's just a friendly ghost."
