The Old Theater in Oriental, NC opened as a movie theater in 1945. It continued as a movie theater into the late-1950’s. After closing, the building sat empty for over thirty years.

In 1992 a nonprofit organization called the Old Theater Corporation was formed. The theater was renovated and opened to the public again in 1995. It is now a cultural center where plays and concerts are performed. It is also used for art exhibits.
