Since our grand opening in 1949, the Joylan has been an essential
presence to the community and surrounding areas.
On October 4, 1949, the Joyan theatre held it Grand Opening showcasing the ambiance of the Art Deco structure, from its glazed brown tile exterior; brightly lit marquee; the two adjacent store fronts to its lavish interior; including a wood paneled lobby; red leather upholstered seats; the curved arch curtained stage; the newest state-of-the-art sound equipment, air conditioning and a snack concession stand.
Since that date numerous families have been the caretakers of the Joylan with all of them focusing on maintaining the strong community commitment and producing memories year after year to its proud residents.
Debby and Ted Adams after 25 years of dedicated service have transitioned the business over to a new team, equally committed to maintaining the historical significance that the community can be proud to call their own.
Partnering with the Watermark Wesleyan Church who shares the space; the Joylan will continue showing first run movies, making delicious popcorn, and making memories for all ages for years to come.
Thank you for being part of our ongoing story.
