Stadium 10 at Northgate's theaters transport audiences into the worlds of first-run movies with immersive picture and sound, comfortable stadium seating, and ample snacks. Plush, high-backed chairs prop up viewers against the torrent of crashes, booms, and Wilhelm screams blasting from the DTS digital-sound systems as they ogle current releases. Handfuls of fluffy Orville Redenbacher's popcorn keep bellies full, and frothy sodas keep tongues wetted while guests stare agape at epic action scenes. Screens also glow during showings in RealD 3-D, giving landscapes, set pieces, and two-dimensional action stars a feeling of depth.

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, the Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.

Two pavilions host rotating exhibits and another pavilion contains the permanent collection. In addition, an auditorium seats 173 people and features lectures and film screenings, whereas the final pavilion houses two classrooms, in addition to the museum's store and café, where members receive discounts.
