The small-town persona of the past included Main Street as the main street and Bijou Theatre. For Columbia, the cinema on the corner of Main and Elm Streets provided a major source of entertainment and helped define the way of life in the small town. Seven days a week, three times a day, and for nearly fifty years, the Columbia Theatre became a landmark in the community and backdrop for many locals on life’s stage.
Celebration of the 225th anniversary of the town’s founding was seemingly incomplete without recognizing the anniversaries for the founding of two of its preservation resources. Site of the Theatre founded in 1938, the Columbia Theatre Cultural Resources Center can also be called a museum, with its preserving a record of Columbia’s traditional lifeways. A nonprofit that helped found the Resource Center, Partnership for the Sounds also helps to preserve Inner Banks ecosystems through advocacy and educational endeavors.
