The Tryon Theatre opened on January 17, 1938 with Deanna Durbin in “3 Smart Girls”. It 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 closing on December 20, 1958 with John Wayne in “Legend of the Lost” & Peter Cushing in “The Horror of Dracula”. 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.
