New Seats

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.

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.

More than 450 people have now pledged to our Kickstarter campaign for new cinema seats. Total contributions now stand at an astounding $51,620 with just 24 hours left in the campaign.

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.
