The Streamline Moderne Imperial Theatre opened in 1941, just prior to the US entry into WW II. The first movie to play there was “Blues in the Night”. The Imperial was the first public building in Pocahontas to be air-conditioned, the first building to use glazed brick (on the facade) and the first with neon lights (on its marquee). The Imperial closed in the mid-70s and was afterward used as an indoor archery range.
In 1994, the Studio for the Arts, a non-profit group, purchased the long-vacant former theater and gutted it, and it was renovated as the Imperial Dinner Theatre.
Currently, the Studio for the Arts is raising funds to build a larger arts venue and dinner theater in town and will vacate the Imperial once the new building opens.
