Save Our Butts (& Yours); Help Fund New Cinema Seats

The Carolina Theatre of Durham is raising funds for new cinema seats through a Kickstarter campaign.

After more than 20 years of constant use, the seats in our theatre's cinemas need to be replaced.  Their low backs, flattened seats and small-ish cupholders are great for nostalgiac purposes, but not so good for the, um, not-so-flattened seats of today's savvy you.

Nevermore Returns To Durham

The 17th Annual Nevermore Film Festival returns to the Carolina of Durham Feb. 12-14.

The Nevermore Film Festival returns to the Carolina Theatre of Durham Friday, February 12 through Sunday, February 14 to deliver its 17th year of horror, science fiction, mystery, thriller, animation and action-adventure films. Since 1999, more than 500 features and shorts have screened at the festival.      

Carolina Theatre Reopens After Storm

Carolina Cinemas

The Carolina Theatre of Durham has reopened and is running on normal hours after Winter Storm Jonas.

We're hoping that all Triangle residents have fully recovered from Winter Storm Jonas. After nearly two days of snow, sleet and freezing rain — and three days of cleanup — it's about time for everything to get back to normal.

Count the Carolina Theatre of Durham as ahead of schedule, then.

Cinemas Closed Mar. 29 - Apr 2 For Seat Installation

The cinemas at the Carolina Theatre will be closed March 28, 2015 - April 2, 2015 for new seat installation.



Remember when you kindly pledged funds on Kickstarter to help the Carolina Theatre get cushy new seats for its cinemas? Well, there was a catch: the cinemas must close for a few days for seat installation.

Just 24 Hours Left To Contribute

Last chance to fund the Carolina Theatre's Kickstarter campaign for new cinema seats.

Thanks For Funding Our Kickstarter! Let’s Keep It Going…

Help Fund New Cinema Seats

Supporters successfully funded the Carolina Theatre of Durham's Kickstarter for new cinema seats.

Late Tuesday morning, the 227th pledge pushed our Kickstarter fund drive past the $25,000 goal we set to help fund our new cinema seats. That is awesome!

Thanks to all who have backed the project thus far. You saved our butts — and yours. We can’t wait for you to see your first film while sitting in the new seats. Installation is scheduled for this April.

Cinema Seats Kickstarter More Than Halfway To Funding Goal

The Carolina Theatre's Kickstarter campaign for new cinema seats is halfway to its goal.

Just three weeks after launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund new seats for our cinemas, the Carolina Theatre of Durham has received support from more than 100 backers who have donated more than half of the drive’s stated $25,000 goal. (The entire project will cost more than $60,000.)

Free Screening of 'The Theory of Everything'

The Carolina Theatre of Durham is hosting a free screening of the Stephen Hawking film The Theory of Everything.

Stephen Hawking has led a remarkable life. Perhaps the smartest living man in the world, the English scientist has spent his entire life doing ground-breaking work in astrophysics, despite being diagnosed at motor neurone disease at age 21. From books like the best-selling A Brief History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell to his modern-day appearances on pop culture shows and at thought-leading seminars, Hawking has become as esteemed a scientist as there is in the world.
