The Charlotte opened in 1925 in a completely refurbished building that had previously held the Ideal Theatre dating from 1917 and before that, the Princess Theatre dating from around 1913. It was a small, second run theater that had a successful run through the 1960’s but then became a porn theater for many years.
The architecture was modest but a later marquee did have an interesting cursive font spelling out the name Charlotte. The building sat empty for a time and hung on longer than all the other downtown theaters except the Carolina Theatre, but has since been demolished.
