In the 1950 and 1951 Film Daily Yearbooks, it has a seating capacity of 450. It continued and was operated by the Stateville Theater Corp. in the early-1960’s

Such a shame that the quaint NC mountain town of Blowing Rock doesn’t have this theater.

This is not demolished. It was located at 1123-1125 Main St and is now home to Hanna’s Oriental Rugs & Gift and another shop called Christmas. The theatre was divided down the middle to form the two retail spaces.
