The Crown at the Carolina Theatre
The Crown at the Carolina started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a third-floor storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September of 2013.
Now a high-tech, black-box performance and rental space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
Today The Crown at the Carolina is used for theatre, live music, spoken word, dance, weddings, private functions, and more Greensboro, NC events.
