The historic Carolina Theatre (formerly the Montgomery Theatre) in Spartanburg, South Carolina was built in 1925, incorporated into Spartanburg’s ten-story Montgomery Building office complex. Designed by the Lockwood and Green architectural firm and originally operated by the Publix chain, it has been described, when built, as “The Finest Theatre in South Carolina.
It is now the only surviving theater in Spartanburg.
Intended to be equipped with a theatre organ, organ chambers and associated wiring and air duct lines were incorporated into the design, but an organ was never installed, a white grand piano being used in it’s stead. The theatre is now owned by the Spartanburg Realty firm, Cleveland-White, Inc. Plans are underway to restore this classical movie palace to its original splendor.
