“Charming theatre”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

An old time theatre movie house that has had nine lives and going strong. We saw a Gilbert and Sullivan show which was a delight. They have everything: shows, music, movies. We got last minute tickets and were in the back of the orchestra where the balcony overhang was rather low and prevented the seats from being tiered. So the back rows didn't rise as much as you might expect. But it was ok. Next time we will either sit closer in the orchestra or in the balcony. Good choice of restaurants nearby. Parking deck across the street and some street parking. A lovely outing.

“Durham Symphony was fantastic!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

We attended a Durham Symphony concert at the Carolina Theater. Seated in the first row of the balcony, we experienced excellent sights and sounds. The Theater is in very good shape for its age.
