Featuring a “Level 5” bar, an intimate stage area, and a rotating series of plays and performance that utilize the talents of some of the area’s top local performers, patrons can enjoy a world-class night at the theater while never straying too far away from home.

The theater is found just a block or so away from the Cape Fear River in the heart of the downtown area, which makes it a convenient destination for any visitor staying in the center of Wilmington. Located within a historic and original Masonic Lodge building, and once owned by Dennis Hopper, the decades of culture gives the space a unique appeal that’s vintage, but still inviting and welcome.
