The Carolina Theatre is located in the so-called downtown district of Durham. It's also one of the only places in town to see all those artsy, documentaries, "Yu-ro-peein" (just kidding) and foreign flicks that require you read subtitles (in my opinion, the only films worth watching). Although I have not attended one, the Carolina Theatre also hosts many film festivals per year (check out their website www.carolinatheatre.org), as well as concerts (classical and folk/rock). Recently, some guy named Quentin Tarantino (ha) was there for some film viewing/discussion. Anyway, the theatre is not as state of the art and luxurious as the multiplex cinemas, nor will it play the latest blockbuster hits. The seats are rather uncomfortable, old, with cramped leg space but unfortunately (or fortunately?) the theatres are usually empty enough that you can sling your legs over the back of the seat in front of you. It really is a pity not many people have found this little gem of a theatre. Ticket prices are $5.25, or were the last time I visited (to watch "Sideways"). You can also get a Frequent Film card that allows you to see your 5th film free. Give this theatre a try, you just might find a new film that you've never heard of.
