Opera House Talk and Tour

April 30, 2016

Albemarle, NC

On April 30, 2016 The Friends of the Stanly County Public Library will host a talk by Lewis Bramlett, great-grandson of F. E. Starnes, Sr., one of the original owners of the building where the Opera House is located. His program will cover information about the origin of the Opera House, other occupants of the building, performances that were held during the glory days of the Opera House, and what has happened since the curtain came down for the last time. No program on the Albemarle Opera House would be complete without the mention of the ghosts that some people believe still linger.

Mr. Bramlett's talk will start at The Gathering, 124 W. Main St. at 2:00 PM and then proceed for a tour of the Opera House located above Starnes Jewelers. Admission is free.
