John Mohrstadt launched the new-build Joy Theatre on December 19, 1946. The building had started on March 1, 1946. It was named in honor of the Mohrstadt’s baby daughter. The opening film was, “My Darling Clementine.” Western star Tim McCoy made an in-person appearance at the the theatre in October 21, 1965. The last film appears to be “The Restless Ones” on November 11, 1965. The Joy appears to have operated to the end of a 20-year lease with some special events but no films in 1966.
