Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Mr. and Mrs. Newman R. Robinson opened the Joy Theatre in the small town of West Rutland around the end of 1946. The house operated until the late-1950’s. For many years the building has been occupied by the studio and foundry of Campbell Plaster & Iron, a company producing decorative metal and plaster work for artists and architects.

A white strip of stone, probably locally-quarried marble, can still be seen on the parapet of the red, concrete block building with the name “Joy Theatre” carved in it.
