- Tilden Hedrick built the Carolina Theatre in 1930. It was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidairy H.F. Kincey. It was used for films and stage shows until 1945, when a fire devastated the building.
A group of Lexington citizens renovated the structure and it continued as a movie theatre named Civic Center Theatre. It was later named the Edward C. Smith Civic Center. The exterior is modern, but the stage remains intact.
