Every local knew Sylvia as warm, friendly and NO nonsense! She is a huge part of my most fond memories which consisted of family outings, date night and girls hanging out there at our beloved little theatre. Nothing will ever compare to those sweet memories of by gone days. Thank you sweet lady for making those possible for the sleepy little beach town we all remember and love you will always be etched in our memories fondly. Till we meet again........

Loved me some Sylvia. We had many good times and fun times at the old Island Twin and then at Cinema 7. Prescreening movies late at night. Visits from Cher, Motley Crew, John Trivolta and the cast of Pipi Longstocking. Sylvia loved her customers and was missed by her community upon her retirement. And to all those who asked i was not her husband. Haha. Rest in peace.

So very sorry fir your loss. I have not seen her for many years. We relocated to Fernandina Beach the same year. Sweet lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sylvia Ann Maloy


Sylvia Ann Maloy, 79 years old, went home to be with our Lord and Savior on June 7, 2024, after a lengthy battle with an illness that she courageously fought until the end.
She was born on October 21, 1944, to Raymond Menendez and Olga Estevez in Tampa FL, where she lived most of her adult life and started her lifelong career managing drive-in movies at the 20th Century Drive-In in 1970. She would go on to manage other drive-ins for Floyd theaters until eventually being relocated to Fernandina Beach in 1981 to manage the Island Twin Theaters, where she saw it through a remodel that would turn it from a two-screen to a seven-screen theater. She remained at this location, where she was lovingly known as the “Movie Theater Lady” for thirty-two years until she retired in 2012, ending her forty-three-year career.
Sylvi was generous and would give anyone anything she had to offer. She loved cooking for her family and spending time with her grandchildren. She was an active member of the First Assembly of God for many years. She was firm in her belief in God, and her faith never wavered. She will be missed every day as the loving mother and grandmother she was.
She leaves behind her children, Kenneth Maloy, Jr., Richard (Natalya) Maloy, Christina Marsh, and Paul (April) Maloy; her grandchildren Victoria (Michael) Maloy, Kendra (Nick) Depasque, Rachel (Jeff) Paul), Brandon (Jessica) Maloy, Michelle Maloy, Will Maloy, Katie Maloy, Alana Maloy, Christian Maloy, Gabby Maloy and here great grandchildren, Sara (Charlie) Dubose, Olivia, Madilynn, Kai, Ahri, Bryson, Brilei, Ezio.
The family asks that donations be made in her memory to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital
Donations can be made in her memory to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105
