Morganton Downtown Historic District


Old Mimosa Theater , Morganton, NC

The Mimosa Theatre built in 1939, has a wonderful vintage Art Deco style exterior and has been operating as a movie theatre since before 1941, when it was listed with a seating capacity of 600.

A new seven screen multiplex was built along side the original Mimosa Theatre in the last few years, which is operated by Marquee Cinemas.

The original theater still has its marquee with the ‘Mimosa’ name but a restaurant has taken over the interior. The seven new screens all have stadium seating.
