I had a chance to see one of my favorite musicians at this beautiful, historic theatre. I was so impressed by it. Even though I had a nosebleed seat, it sounded like I was up front. It's a nice intimate venue for music and shows.

Love the Carolina Theater for events and films. It's a great historic theater with lots of ornate touches. The cinemas are big screen and show some great classics as well as indie films. Love this place.

I am not sure what that means. Suggest you call the theater box office directly.
