Virgil Johnson popcorn and candy stand removed (1963)

Thursday, December 12, 2019

For 37 years, Virgil Johnson's popcorn and candy stand served eager residents of Anacortes with sweets and treats. Originally standing strategically outside the Empire Theater, the stand was up for demolition when the theater closed down. Due to popular outcry from the people though, the stand actually managed to exist longer than the theater did. It continued to operate near the old theater for over a decade until it was taken down in 1963.
