Dear Appalachian Theatre friends and fans,

These are exciting times! We’re in the final phase of renovation of this historic treasure and we are so appreciative of all your support and enthusiasm. The theatre is slated to open in fall 2019 and there is still much work to be done. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

When it opened in 1938, a stunning terrazzo floor in the lobby and dramatic Art Deco carpets welcomed visitors.  We want to bring back that artistry and craftsmanship. Help us recreate that historic feel by contributing to our first crowdfunding campaign.

You can play a leading role and make this happen by donating!

The Appalachian Theatre of the High Country (ATHC) operates the historic Appalachian Theatre, located in the heart of downtown Boone, North Carolina. Once a gorgeous, Art Deco theater, the building closed in 2007 and was later gutted. Today, the ATHC is meticulously rehabilitating the theater to replicate its former glory while also serving as a new performance venue that hosts live music, digital-projection films, theatrical productions, and dance performances. A large community room space on the second floor of the building will also provide Boone with the only downtown venue capable of hosting meetings, receptions, and conferences for up to 200 people. Facade renovations were completed in 2017. Interior renovations will begin in Summer 2018, with an anticipated opening in late Summer 2019.

In the meantime, feel free to look around, learn about us, and explore current events involving the ATHC.
