The Carolina Theatre is downtown Greensboro’s original performing arts center. Billed as the Showplace of the Carolinas when it first opened in 1927, today the theatre is home to concerts from artists across all genres, classic and independent movies, community theatre and dance, as well as local performances in its third-floor loft theatre, The Crown.

For 15 years, The Cemala Foundation has invested in the future of The Carolina Theatre in order to support its valuable addition to Greensboro’s performing arts environment.
