The Chincoteague Island Arts Organization is a 501(3)c nonprofit organization, incorporated in Virginia as a non-profit in December 2011. CIAO was created to save, utilize and maintain the vintage Island Theatre as a cultural arts center for Chincoteague, offering a unique downtown venue for events.
Now beautifully restored, the Island Theatre (formerly the Island Roxy), offers classic and family films as well as concerts, plays and all kinds of other entertainment. The theater aims to please the local community and visitors alike with a diverse selection of exciting events!
The Annex is a small performance space adjacent to the theater, perfect for educational programs, lectures, classes, and community or business meetings. It also hosts fun weekly events like Game Day Mondays. Give us a call or check the event schedule below for dates, times and descriptions.

We have been working to make the Theatre and the Annex as safe as possible. Plasma filter air handling systems have been installed in both the Theatre and the Annex. Both locations are cleaned thoroughly and frequently. There are other changes you may notice as well. The lobby and concession area have been repainted with colors that echo the original color scheme from 1947. Marquee lighting is improved, and the lobby and concession lights will be brighter. New exit lights are being installed. The entrance doors have been restored to their original appearance.
