Historic Earle Theatre and Old-Time Music Heritage Hall

Earl Theatere

Built in 1938, the Earle Theatre has remained much the same as it did in the 1930s. The old-time music heritage hall is open daily until 3 p.m. Every Thursday night at 7 p.m. is a free bluegrass/old-time jam session - anyone is welcome to bring an instrument and join in the fun! The Earle Theatre is also home to the second-longest-running live radio show in the nation, broadcast on WPAQ 740 AM - the Merry-Go-Round show, every Saturday at 11 a.m. for $8 per person. Admission to the Merry-Go-Round also includes your admission to the Andy Griffith Museum. The Earle also still shows movies throughout the year. Call 336-786-2222 for features and show times.
