A Palace of Entertainment: New Bern’s Athens Theatre

Record #:
The Athens Theatre opened in New Bern in 1911 to accommodate traveling theater troupes, live local productions, concerts and silent movies. After several decades, the theatre entered a serious state of deterioration and closed in 1979. Recent efforts are attempting to repair and restore the theatre to working conditions.
