Situated in the heart of Downtown Durham, this Beaux Arts-style building includes Fletcher Hall, restored to its original 1926 décor, which houses live performances by musicians, comics, speakers, theater companies, and special series like the Arts Discovery Educational Series, which are stage performances designed to augment traditional classroom learning with presentations of dance, classic works like Charlotte’s Web, and other pieces.

The building also includes two adjacent cinemas that screen newly released films and classic works from cinema history in the Retro Film Series. These screens are also home to annual film festivals like the nationally renowned Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, the NC Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, and the Nevermore Film Festival of horror movies.
