The Old Theater reopened with community support in the mid 1990's and has been fortunate to maintain that support today. In addition to those who financially support our productions and fundraising, there are a host of local businesses and individuals who collaborate behind the scenes with us to provide venue space, extended advertisement, storage and additional financial support through special donations. We salute our community partners who work behind the scenes to help keep The Old Theater front and center for performing arts in Pamlico County.

The Old Theater is located at 609 Broad Street in the heart of Oriental, North Carolina. The building first opened as a movie theater in 1945 and served as a social and entertainment center until the late 1950s. It was revitalized and reopened in 1995 and today provides a venue where performing arts can thrive in Pamlico County.

The Old Theater is owned and managed by the Old Theater Corporation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of Pamlico County volunteers,

whose mission is to ensure the people of Pamlico County and the town of Oriental have a local venue for civic and cultural events.

This mission is accomplished by maintaining the facility and grounds; making the facility available for use by providers of performing arts and a variety of civic, business, local clubs, schools and charitable organizations; and by presenting a broad range of theater-sponsored programs and outreach to the schools throughout Pamlico County.

The ability to achieve this mission relies on the support and participation of our members, individual donors, community businesses, service organizations, grants and volunteers on stage and behind the scenes. If you would like to volunteer with the Old Theater, or participate in a future event, go to our volunteer page.
