Built circa 1948. Open until 1955(?). Owned and operated by the Taylor family who owned the Taylor Theatre on Broad Street, the Hiway 17 Drive-In, and the Gatesville Theatre in Gatesville, NC. Though I don’t know the details it appears that the Eden Theatre was probably closed when Mrs. Taylor sold her theaters to Mr. W. J. P. Earnhardt, Sr.

A pamphlet published about Historic Edenton (Woman’s Club)in 1953 lists a sponsorship advertisement by the Taylors listing all of their theaters, including the Eden Theatre. The Eden Theatre was a no frills utilitarian theater.

After its short lived theater usage the building was used for storage and has been remodeled with a “Colonial” style look, in keeping with Edenton’s main architectural theme. It is now used as offices for an accounting business.
