Illing’s (or Illings) Theatre was opened in 1909 for Eugene W. Illing. It was located on the corner of Washington and Porter Avenues.

It was leased to the Joy Theatres chain in 1946. It closed in around 1953 or 1954, but reopened in 1957 briefly, before closing for good in 1958.

The Illings Theatre was torn down in 1968 and the First Baptist Church of Ocean Springs was built on the site in 1969.
