Eighty-five years in the making, the Carolina Theatre Historic Exhibit celebrates the fascinating history of Durham’s beloved theater.
a legacy worth remembering...
The Carolina Theatre is kicking off a three-year fundraising, design and installation project highlighting the 85 year history of our historic theatre. We've just completed Phase I in which we have begun to tell the story of the theatre's early history.
we're off to a great start...
We now need to raise additional funds to complete two additional phases of the project. In Phase II, we want to tell the story of the dedicated volunteers from the 1970s and the 1980s whose efforts helped to save the building and urged the City of Durham to renovate the theatre. Phase III will tell the story of integration of the Carolina and the people who were dedicated to making certain that their theatre had equal access for all.
help us honor the past...
As the last remaining theatre, of the original 13 in downtown Durham, we want to tell the story of the evolution of the Carolina Theatre. We want to share the stories of the people who gave of themselves to ensure that future generations would have this beautiful building to enjoy for many years to come.
Help us share our story, honor the past and make history at the Carolina.
