ncmark: This is wonderful news for those of us who love uptown Charlotte and all that it has to offer including the Blumenthal PAC and the Knight Center. To see a projected opening date of 2016 is “music to my ears”. Charlotte is not the only city to have lost an historical theatre(s) as I recall reading about a few in Nashville that should still be standing today. The Carolina Theatre building stands waiting to be rediscovered and given a rebirth. Thank you Bank of America for your pledge to kickstart the renovation of this important piece of Charlotte’s past.
Always interesting to read about this Carolina Theatre. Does anyone have updated information on the Carolina Theatre/Charlotte?
What is the current status of this theatre?
What a great night photo with that blade sign reading FOX.
This theatre is the current home of the I Love Lucy Live On Stage production. If you haven’t seen this show and you are in Boston….go! And if you haven’t ever been to the Lucy Comedy Festival in Jamestown NY….go! Jamestown is the birthplace of Lucille Ball, the First Lady of Comedy. www.lucy-desi.com
Stephen: Your recent post brought tears to my eyes and when I read…“An eternal Aloha to Patsy from dad” I wiped away a tear. I will truly miss my “Hawaii Guy”. God Bless you and your family.
This is a link recently sent to me via Facebook with many amazing photos of this former theatre.
Watch this amazing video between Joey and the real horses when War Horse came to Providence.
And should be the photo on the main CT page rather than the one with a sad looking marquee.
This is my favorite photo taken of the Grand Theatre!
I just “favorited” this photo!
MarkNYLA: Very good news! Hope to visit this theatre next Spring or Summer as the exterior looks like black carerra glass or vitrolite.
Don’t know the background to the original name, FARMAN though do love the unique curved marquee photo….not many theatres have or had curved marquees though the marquee on my former hometown theatre designed by Michael De Angelis was curved as the theatre was located on a corner in Westfield NY.
Patti44: Great news and I do like the rename of Main Street Theater! Thanks for the updated good news! Keep us posted!
Nice to learn that two chandeliers in the Des Peres Cinema are identified with a plaque on the wall…music to my ears!
Nice to know it is still intact since it is the original design by DeAngelis.
Do wish the photo with this theatre featured the Carrara glass exterior on a bright sunny day without the highway barrels.
So sad that this theatre has been closed yet again and this time due to back taxes.
2013McCormack: I do tend to agree.
Nice to learn through a few recent posts that this theatre may be returned to its former life as a theatre and not a night club. Sorry to learn that the floor was leveled though. Is there anyone who could give me a tour as I and my husband will be passing through the Bluefield area on November 10 of this year?
Came upon this art deco gem by accident…trying to find a theatre in California by the name of REDMOND. It was featured in the movie, First Daughter.
Such sweet news! Congrats!
Thanks for posting the above links! Aloha!
Very good news! When in Charlotte next, must go see any and all progress!
