Visited Wilmington last spring (2008). It looked like The Manor was still there. “Hill’s Wilmington (New Hanover County, NC) City Directory 1958” shows The Manor at 208 Market St. The business at 208 Market Street in 2008 was “The Rox” – some sort of entertainment venue. The facade looks different but it appears to be the same building that housed The Manor.

Also, The Manor would have been one of four downtown movie houses in 1958 per that city directory with the other three being The Bailey, The Colony and The Ritz (810 N. 4th St).
