The historic Appalachian Theatre, has entertained audiences in the heart of downtown Boone, North Carolina since 1938.
Once a gorgeous 999-seat Art Deco movie house, the building closed in 2007 and sat empty and gutted for years. On October 14, 2019, the Appalachian Theatre re-opened its doors after a $10 million renovation that brought the distinctive Art Deco details back to this historic theatre and created a new 629-seat, state-of-the-art, acoustically fabulous venue for live concerts, films, plays, and dance performances. The spacious community room with historic murals provides Boone with the only downtown venue capable of hosting meetings and receptions for over 100 people.
