Joylan Theatre (Official)
Functions: Movies (First Run)
Styles: Streamline Moderne
The Joylan Theatre with its seating capacity of nearly 700 is both spacious and impressive. Ted and Debby have owned the Joylan Theatre since 1995 and treat it like a member of the family. It’s always immaculate and tidy.
The Joylan Theatre is open six days per week and pretty much a family run operation. Its newer projectors, DDS, and new air conditioning system make the Joylan Theatre a great place to see a movie.
The Joylan Theatre opened on October 4, 1949 with Mario Lanza in “That Midnight Kiss”. It successfully combined two architectural disciplines. The Art Deco style exterior and Art Moderne style interior compliment each other quite nicely. The Joylan’s auditorium is simple but impressive. The three arches which span the auditorium with their indirect neon lighting are both unique and spectacular. The streamlined ticket wicket and blonde wood trim and panelling typify the period of the theatre.
I’ve attended the Joylan Theatre probably 20 times and enjoyed every visit. When in Western New York, take in a movie at the Joylan Theatre, you won’t be disappointed.
In March 2021 it was reopened by new owners Russ & Rebecca Pustulka.
