The Streamline Moderne style Imperial Theatre opened in 1941, just prior to the US entry into World War II. The first movie to play there was “Blues in the Night”. The Imperial Theatre 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 Theatre closed in the mid-1970’s 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.
The Studio for the Arts raised funds to build a larger arts venue and dinner theater in town and vacated the Imperial Dinner Theatre in 2004. It now operates as the Randolph Music Theater.
