I have found the grand opening advertisement from 1941 and will be revised for the Cinema Treasures site.

I have added photos to this site since around July 2013. The latest are various photos from the theatres use as a retail business other than a theatre. Also included are some photos I mentioned having taken in Nov 2013. As of this posting, the Visual Art Cen is due to open in march.

According to one of the articles about the Cary Theater from the December 2,2012 edition of the Raleigh Sunday News and Observer:

It states that the Cary Theater opened somewhere around 1941 and closed in 1960 when the theater was converted into a clothing store and later on an Auto Parts store.

This webpage describes the plans for the new Cary arts complex, including an architectural drawing of the new facility showing the former Cary Theater as the right-hand part of the building. There is also a photo of the building when it was an auto parts store. There is also this drawing of what the new marquee might look like.
