The Varsity Theatre

A Franklin Street icon, the recently renovated Varsity Theatre has entertained audiences and cineastes for more than 50 years with screenings of current blockbusters, cult flicks, indie films, and classics. A vintage marquee beckons audiences to file into comfy seats as 35mm and digital projectors project movies onto screens. Along with regularly scheduled showings, The Varsity also holds special events such as film forums, dinner-and-movie specials, or interviews with John Wayne's neckerchief. Groups can rent out the theaters for birthday parties, corporate functions, or special events, with multiple media services and catering options available.

Customer Reviews

Best deal on movies and snacks in town!... Would love to see more 'artsy', indie and foreign films there, though. ...What about cult classics, marathons, themes, etc... the high road might pull in more regulars... Similar to what the Carolina Theatre

Sweet old fashioned theater in the heart of downtown Chapel Hill where you can see a movie for a great price. I love to buy the Groupon deals and take my son and a whole gang of his friends.
