A group of leaders from Watauga County is conducting a capital campaign to raise support for the purchase, renovation, and restoration of the 1930’s-era Appalachian Theatre on King Street in Downtown Boone. The Theatre has a rich, colorful history, but now stands gutted and boarded up in the middle of a rapidly-growing, vibrant area.
The Theatre, once it is restored to its original art deco brilliance, will be capable of hosting a variety of events including lectures, meetings, film series, concerts, medium size theatre and smaller dance productions. With approximately 600 seats, the Theatre will be able to host almost any small- to mid-sized performing arts event. Space above the lobby can be used for business meetings, wedding receptions, class reunions, and other events. The auditorium will have approximately 350 orchestra and 250 balcony seats, and the meeting/reception space will accommodate 250 to 300.
