The National Theatre was located in the heart of downtown Greensboro. It opened in 1921 with a seating capacity of 1,800. The theatre had a mezzanine level and a balcony. During its early days it prided itself on its live shows and vaudeville acts. It also hosted touring productions of some of Broadway’s greatest productions, including Tallulah Bankhead in Noel Coward’s “Private Lives”, Joe E. Brown in the stage version of “Harvey and the original production of "Oklahoma!”, all presented live on the stage. As a movie theatre, it screened some of the greatest films ever to come out of Hollywood.
By the late-1950’s toward the early-1960’s it shifted from A-list movies to B-list movies, with the occasional “Dracula” type film. By 1966, the National Theatre closed forever, and by early-1967 it was demolished and was replaced by a parking lot.
