You’ll find The Old Theater 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 a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with a Board of Directors comprised of Pamlico County volunteers whose mission is to ensure that Pamlico County and the town of Oriental has a venue for civic and cultural events. In addition to our Friday Flicks and theatrical productions, The Old Theater is the home stage for Pamlico Musical Society, Children's Theater Workshop, the Pamlico Chorale and Pamlico Community Band. It is also available to rent for your next event.
