Charlotte’s Oldest Movie Theater Will Not Be Reopening After COVID-19 Restrictions Lift


Charlotte’s oldest movie theater has just announced that it will not be reopening after the COVID-19 restrictions lift.

According to a statement from the owners, the historic Manor Twin Theatre in Myers Park will be permanently closing its doors. Manor first opened in 1947 and was taken over by Regal Cinemas in 2005 who continued its legacy of showing less mainstream films.

“EFC is proud to have been a part of the long legacy of the Manor theater, first as operators and more recently as landlord,” said Josh Page, COO of Eastern Federal, “I know Regal will do a great job of serving Charlotte’s art community in its other venues.”

Regal currently operates 4 other theaters around Charlotte.
