Blumenthal Performing Arts – Belk Theater

With many music, theater, dance and comedy opportunities, Blumenthal Performing Arts is host to six auditoriums in uptown Charlotte. Each of the six locations offers a different experience for the audience and performers – from Broadway musicals in the state-of-the-art Belk Theater to intimate plays at the Stage Door Theater, any resident of Charlotte is sure to have a favorite!

The points of light are currently out for restoration, but the glass dome stands impressively on its own.

The 2,400 “points of light” dazzle guests in the audience chamber prior to the start of each show, and refreshment stands are open before show time and at intermission. We were happily surprised that the Belk Theater allowed, in fact encouraged, us to take our refreshments into the theater for the show.

The blue velvet seats inside are classic and comfortable. The seating arrangement is fantastic, and the furthest seat is less than 135 feet from the stage. The Belk Theater manages to invoke the coziness of a traditional Broadway theater with nearly double the capacity.

It is a treasure to have such a wonderful auditorium within our city. I can’t wait to go back again and again!
