A cultural cornerstone: Tryon Theatre’s new owners preserving a piece of town’s history
There’s not a bad seat inside the nearly 80-year-old Tryon Theatre.
Scott and Gayle Lane prefer the seats in the center of the third row, in the middle section on the theater’s ground floor. They say the chairs there recline at the perfect angle and the acoustics are appealing.
In January, the Lanes went from moviegoers to theater owners when they bought the historic North Carolina theater from Barry Flood. A school teacher by day, Flood owned and operated Tryon Theatre for 26 years.
