Each year tens of thousands of people enter the Carolina Theatre
and, until recently, left knowing nothing about our rich history and legacy in Downtown Durham.

To change that, we have kicked-off a three year fundraising, design and installation effort dedicated to telling the 85 year history of the Carolina Theatre complex.  Recently opened in Kirby Lobby, phase one chronicles the 1920’s construction as well as a broad overview of the theatre’s history. Phase two and three will be dedicated to the volunteers from the 1970’s and 1980’s and the civil rights struggles of the 1960’s.


Our mission is to serve greater Durham and the Triangle region with programs of the performing and cinematic arts in our historic treasure, The Carolina Theatre. We strive to contribute to the cultural and economic vitality of downtown Durham and to delight and educate our children and future leaders.

The Carolina Theatre is a historic performing arts complex owned by the City of Durham and managed and operated by the non-profit Carolina Theatre of Durham Inc. The complex includes the last remaining of 13 theaters in downtown Durham. Live performances at the Carolina Theatre are supported in part by the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency funded by the state of North Carolina, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the A.J. Fletcher Performing Arts Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation.
