- Dec 3, 2012 — Cary to incorporate its 1940's-era theater into new arts complex
The Cary Theater was the city’s first indoor motion picture theater and opened in 1941. After its closing as a movie theater in 1960, it was used as a clothing store, as a recording studio, and as an auto parts store.
The City of Cary incorporated the former theater into a new community arts center, with new construction immediately adjacent to and also within the theater. The new facility, which serves a variety of cultural and performing arts functions,has flexible seating, a balcony, and projection facilities. A new marquee is of a design reflective of the era of the original theater’s construction. It was reopened February 14, 2014.
