What's the difference between the Carolina Theatre and Carolina Theater?

A theater and a theatre are essentially the same. It’s all a matter of preference though using “theatre” generally means that the shows at the location are geared towards more arts and drama. At the Carolina Theatre we offer a wide variety of shows and we find “theatre” more encompassing of all we have to offer. Calling us the Carolina Theater isn’t in bad taste by any means by does typically mean a movie theater more than a performing arts and event space.
