Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built in 1945 in the Art Deco style, the Island Roxy Theatre features Misty’s hoof prints set in the concrete sidewalk in front of the box office. “Misty” was the opening night movie. The original fabric on the walls joins the impressive interior with the original green and pink terrazzo in the lobby.

This theater is the only theater left on Chincoteague Island. There were once three, the Star, The Island, and the Opera House. All of these theater were opened and operated by a Mr. Powell.

I like that this little theater seemingly in the middle of nowhere takes credit cards. View link

I guess since we’re not their friends they make it more difficult.

 On a recent (July 4, 2014) drive by this theatre is very much open and very busy.  I forget which show was playing but there were 3 times for the show that day. It's location on Main Street in Chincoteague is surrounded by scores of little shops and is cooled by a nice bay wind.

If this theatre was built and opened in 1945, how is the movie “Misty”, which came out in 1960, the opening night movie?
