The Academy of Music was Charlotte’s cultural center until it ws destroyed by fire on December 16, 1922. It opened on September 26, 1902 and was by the architectural firm of Hook & Sawyer. C. C. Hook would go on to be the local architect who contributed to the Carolina Theatre in 1927. A detailed article from the Charlotte Observer on September 8. 1902 gives a glowing write up on the details of the space.
All types of entertainment were presented here but movies played a vital role in the programming including ‘Quo Vadis’ in 1913, ‘Birth of a Nation’ in 1915, ‘Intolerance’ in 1917 and ‘Way Down East’ in 1921.
