“Thank you” to everyone who provided pictures of the Village, both exterior and especially the interior shots. The decoration, though minimal, was great in the main auditorium.
I enjoyed seeing the photos showing the billboards on the back of the theater as well as those on the roof. I seem to remember when they actually had advertisements for movies on them (an on-set of old age maybe).

Thank you for identifying “Adventure Village”. Until recently, I never knew that it was back there with all of the trees and undergrowth obscuring it. Driving past there for so many years, to and from Ocean City, I would have thought that I would have known it was there.
Thanks also for all of your hard work in creating and maintaing the Ocean City theater website. I loved all four of the theaters on the Boardwalk and truly miss that none are as I remember them. I had a special fondness for the interior decoration of the Village. I saw the movie “Rollercoaster” in “sensesurround” I believe it was called, and how it shook the building.
My favorite theater, though was always the Strand. It was so beautiful! I believe it was you that allowed me to photograph the interior one evening after the show. I still treasure those pictures. Looking at them I can almost smell the inside of the Strand and feel the fabric of the seats against my bare legs as I stared up at the screen.
Thanks again for keeping wonderful memories alive.
