Neighborhood Theatre

Map511 E. 36th St.
Charlotte, NC 28205
  • Arts & Culture
  • Nightlife


When galleries came to NoDa in the 1990s, so did a new idea for the rundown Astor Theatre, built in 1945 to bring movies to millworkers and their families. It would become the Neighborhood Theatre, a live music venue that has since seen its own ups and downs. It closed for two months in early 2013, but reopened that May under new management. Its classic marquee still hangs over the sidewalk along 36th Street, and this place is still a central part of NoDa’s artistic identity, rocking the neighborhood with touring and local acts.
