Duke Arts Presents

Carolina Theatre of Durham

309 West Morgan Street
Durham, NC 27701

The last remaining of thirteen vaudeville-era theaters in downtown Durham, the Carolina Theatre was built in 1926 in the Beaux-Arts style. At the heart of what is now a complex of two cinemas and an auditorium is Fletcher Hall, the original structure, which has a capacity of 1,048 seats; its decor was restored to its original glory in 2011. Duke Performances hosts jazz, international music, and indie rock in this accessible venue.
