Another theatre that shows its decline in pictures.
In those pictures, you can even see the decline of the once great Rivoli Theatre into the depths that if became just before the end.
Renewing my link.
Renewing my link. Still is THE BEST theatre in Central Pa. to see a film.
American Classic Images also has an older picture of the Sameric before the other three theatres were added. The film showing was a 70mm presentation (Either a “Star Wars” and “Indy” film if I remember.) And they had the fabric banner around the bottom of the marquee stating it was a 70mm 6 track Dolby stereo sound presentation. Even though I have a picture of the “Boyd” from earlier, I am still thinking of ordering a copy of this one. And the sign board above the marquee only advertises the one film – naturally.
Renewing my link. Thanks Mr.Coffee
John Messick and John S in York – wondering if we might still ever get together and have a chat about the “old days.” Time keeps marching on.
Just renewing my notification.
This is a duplicate listing. See #22599. The lobby of the Joy Theatre is being used for a real estate office. The actual auditorium is in tack except for the seats. The Pharmacy is a few doors down the street. See the other listing for more information.
I would like to correct the Spectrum Oct. 17, 2007 comment. The Capitol Theatre is on the corner and the Strand Theatre is to the left of the Capitol. I lived in York in the mid 1960’s as I was going to college there at the time. The theatres were operated by Stanley Warner at the time. The Strand was a one floor with a long lobby. The Capitol had a balcony. The marquee’s at the time were connected as one by neon in between. It was a long marquee with each theatre having a face and one end. Until I attended movies there I also thought the Capitol was bigger than the Strand as it was larger from the view from the street and I also knew it had a balcony. I am so glad they did save the theatres. Lancaster, about 25 miles East of York, where I live, had four movie theatres downtown and they were all demolished in 1966-67.
Cyndi – Maybe she no longer works there. The office is still listed in the latest phone book. It is Main Street Mount Joy, 15 Marietta Ave., Mount Joy, PA 17552. The Phone number is (717) 6534227. They have an internet site www.msmj.org I am going to check that out as soon as I submit this. Thanks for trying. Once again, just call me determined!!!!!
Hi CyNdi, I had emailed you two pictures of the Joy Theatre in Mt. Joy, Pa. It has been closed since the late 1960’s, but the building has been maintained. Mt. Joy, Pa. is located in Lancaster County midway between Lancaster and Harrisburg. I know a while ago I was talking to Stacy Rutherford in the Main Street Mount Joy office and they were really willing to work with anyone to get the theatre reopened. Her email address is
Call me determined!!!!! Thanks
This is amazing. In 1967 to 1970 I was stationed at Kindley Air Force Base in Bermuda. What is now called the Southside Cinema was the base movie theatre operated by the Army/Air Force Motion Picture Service. We, I had a part-time job as theatre manager, used to show movies before they were shown at the two Bermuda “civilian” theatres at the time. The two theatres were the Rosemont and Island (?) both in downtown Hamilton, Bermuda. The Southside looks exactly the same as it did 40 years ago. In fact the glass front was being added when I first arrived there in 1967. There were two carbon arc 35mm projectors in the theatre booth. I had heard that when the Navy took over the base and theatre in 1970 they used 16mm projectors set up in the auditorium. Does that picture bring back memories!
