The Joy Theater was a local community theater located on Howard Avenue on Point Cadet, Biloxi, MS. I do not know exactly when the theater closed, but, if the building had still existed, it would have been destroyed by Katrina in 2005. So, it is safe to say it no longer exists.

The Joy Theatre was located at 1624 East Howard Avenue, Biloxi, MS. When first constructed, the theatre remained open for only a short time and was then closed. Later, the building was purchased by a new owner from J. J. Yeager. The new owner remodeled the Joy and operated it for a few years. On Dec 31, 1955 an ad appeared in the local newspaper advertising a bankrupcy sale by the courts for the building and all contents. The operator defaulted on his mortgage and Yeager foreclosed on it. The Joy never was reopened.
