PORT LAVACA – The screens weren’t running at Twin Dolphins Theater on Thursday evening, but the distinctly nostalgic smell of buttered popcorn still filled the air.

Residents lined up on the side of the building in their vehicles to purchase the concessions they have missed since their town’s only theater shut down in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Port Lavaca resident Carley Stringo said her children were thrilled when she arrived home with “real movie theater popcorn” as a surprise for their at-home movie night.
