Located on the rear end of the Tunnel Road Shopping Center, the Terrace Theatre was Asheville’s first-ever ‘Ultravision’ Theatre that opened on June 13, 1967. The Terrace Theatre upon its opening was operated by Wilby-Kincey Corporation/North Carolina Theatres, and was designed by the Asheville architectural firm Six Associates, headed by William B. McGehee. In fact Six Associates designed several other theatres like the Terrace Theatre and others throughout the state with its 750-seat auditorium having a round widescreen curve that had a full 180 degree Ultravision screen that was quite impressive and very unique, that was capable of showing bigger movie presentations in either 70mm or 35mm films. The premiere attraction for its grand opening of the Terrace Theatre on June 13, 1967 was “Caprice” starring Doris Day.
By 1976, its original auditorium was split down into two sections creating two shoebox auditoriums with smaller screens when this theatre was operated by ABC Southeastern Theatres and it was renamed the Terrace Theatres 1 & 2. This was a showplace for great entertainment in the Asheville area and it remained under 1990 when this theatre was closed by Cineplex Odeon/Plitt Southern Theatres.
