The Pier Theater was opened prior to 1926. By 1950 it had been renamed Madeline Theater. The first and last time that I was ever in the Madeline Theater was on August 9th, 1960, when the theater was showing “The Lost World”, starring Michael Rennie, Jill St. John and Claude Raines. The Madeline Theater was a full-sized movie theater built on pilings that extended out over the Atlantic Ocean.
During high tide, the movie patrons could easily hear the waves breaking against those pilings. As the dinosaurs crashed through the jungle on the screen, the waves crashed below and the floor shook under our seats.
The hurricane of March 1962 washed away the Madeline Theater and most of the boardwalk at that spot.
