GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Carolina Theatre realizes that movies just aren't the same unless they are in a theater. That's why they continue their holiday ritual of showing us the classics in a classic theater.
"We are thrilled to be back in person this year," said Marketing director Meghan Kope, "This is the way everyone wants to see these films. Of course, we are still following some safety precautions and asking that you wear your mask but these films have truly become a holiday ritual for a lot of local families."
