The Carolina Theatre, which has been in operation since 1926, is one of the most established arts organizations in downtown Durham, and attracts more than 150,000 people downtown every year. It has a distinct personality and atmosphere that can only be found in Durham and provides a unique experience every time that you go.
The Carolina Theatre shows movies but also holds concerts and dance performances. Some of the live concerts that they have coming up include: Sam Bush, who is a Grammy award winning multi-instrumentalist, Terence Blanchard who is a top-tier jazz player and composer, and Chris Botti who is the largest selling American instrumental artist!
I have been to movies as well as live performances at the Carolina Theatre and have loved all of them. The atmosphere is authentic and truly an amazing place to see a great show!
