The Roseland Theater’s doors have windows above them which read, “The best people on earth walk through these doors, our customers”, and “If when you pass you cannot stop, smile as you go by.” This really shows the essence of a small town theater.

The theatre has a balcony and originally had dual arc 35mm projectors. It now has an automated projector system with a single 35mm projector and film platter system.

Onancock, ‘Nancock’ as the the locals call it, only has about 1,500 folks. It is located on the Delmarva Peninsula, DELaware, MARyland, VirginiA. Which is about 170 miles long and from 70-12 miles wide with the Chesapeake Bay on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Until 1964 the sandy charming Virginia Easten Shore was only connected to Mainland Virginia at Norfolk/Virginia Beach by a Ferry. In that year the massive 23 MILE Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel opened and the ferry was no longer needed.

Still open and showing first-run movies with the occasional foreign/art film. One of only two theatres on Virginia’s eastern shore that still show first-run films.
