I sent a letter to the owners that were listed in the Washington County Tax office asking if I could tour the theatre, but I never got a response from them. Can anyone tell me what the status of the Vance Theatre is?

Vance Theater is now owned by the owners of the adjoining 1901 cafe. Don & Gloria Potts. No word yet what their plans for the venue are. They have asked the local historical society for any info and pictures of the theater.

A few years ago I got in contact with the owners and they said they would allow me to tour the theatre; however, I had some health problems and never got around to it. I cannot get a hold of them now and the above website is no longer active. Does anyone know the status of the Vance?

Film Daily Yearbook’s:1941 & 1943 editions show a Reva Theatre with 300 seats in Chipley, FL. In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. the only theatre operating in the town is the 475 seat Vance Theatre. Could be the same theatre (enlarged)?
