AWARD WINNING THEATRE TO BE SOLD TO AWARD WINNING FILMMAKERS .

It is with great thanks and appreciation to our patrons that I would like to announce the sale of the Terrace Theater on James Island. For the last three years it has been our pleasure serving the Charleston movie going public. Over this time we have seen the theater grow to one of the most prominent movie theaters in the state. I feel the time is now right to pass the torch. John and I are please to introduce you the new owners Paul Brown and Barbara Tranter. Paul ,Barbara and there son Sam are relocating to Charleston to continue offering Charleston the best movie going experience possible. Both are accomplished film makers and movie theater operators. I trust the Terrace will be in good hands. Barbrara and Paul will continue the Terrace tradition.
John Brieger and I will continue to operate South Carolinas premiere first run cinema down town under the new name the Hippodrome. The Terrace and the Hippodrome will continue to work together on the Charleston Film Festival!
It has been a pleasure making the Terrace Theater the best movie theater in Charleston.We could have not done it without you , our loyal customers.

We have lots of new business ventures for Charleston to be announce in the near future..

Michael Furlinger
