The Grand Theatre was opened in 1914. In 1920 it was renamed Palace Theatre. In 1934 it was renamed Carolina Theatre. Manager listed was Claud G. Edgerton. As a kid in the late-1940-s and early-1950’s I spent most Saturdays in the Carolina Theatre watching double feature westerns (Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Lash LaRue, Alan “Rocky” Lane) and many more too numerous to name. Program always included a comedy (3 Stooges, Little Rascals) a serial (Superman, Rocket Man) and at least 1 cartoon.
Admission was 9 cents and the rest of the quarter I had bought candy, popcorn, and a drink. The program changed 2 or sometimes 3 times a week.
The last year the theatre was listed in the City Directory was 1957, and in 1958 the building was listed as a shoe store. Building is still there, but vacant.
