The Playhouse Theatre in Statesville was built in the early-1900’s as a live performance theatre, complete with dressing rooms, trap doors, and a huge fly area. It was fronted by the Stearns office building.
It was owned by Statesville Theatre Corporation, but then sold to Stewart & Everett in the early-1970’s.
It lasted as a movie theatre until it was demolished in 1983. A Wachovia bank stands where the Playhouse Theatre once stood.
This contributor worked there as a teenager from 1970-1974, as a concession attendant, projectionist, doorman, and assistant manager.
