The Tryon Theatre opened in 1938 and was the last movie theatre built in downtown Charlotte. It was a modest space both inside and out and showed second run movies its entire life which lasted until the late-1950’s. It did have a nice marquee which was saved and moved to a new location.

Look for the restored marquee gracing the entrance to a restaurant in the Cavalaris building on Morehead Street in the Dilworth neighborhood.

Pity Charlotte didn’t have enough sense to save some theatres,guess they were trying to play catch up with ATL, Hey, Atl saved a Couple of Theatres Downtown.

It didn’t just show 2nd run features. It also showed striptease flicks. Eww! Shame, shame.
