Amazing Venue

We were pleasantly surprised at this modern venue. We saw several local bands on a Saturday night. It's a great choice for a relaxing night out.

Just went to a play (Guys and Dolls) and really enjoyed it. Local talent as well as others. Very lucky to have this facility in Yadkinville. There are art exhibits that change often with very good artists represented that would be free to public, most events in the theater would have a fee.

Saw the group Balsam Range here today and was pleasantly surprised at this venue. Apparently this center has quite a bit of history. I was told it use to be a car dealership and the theater itself was where the garage was located many years go. The theater is lovely with beautiful, craftsman like design. The seating is very comfortable.... More

I attended a local musical here in December and then returned to see a local high school music department performance. The theater is quaint and the local talent excellent! There are many local artists whose works are displayed in the foyer and these change monthly - paintings, quilts, etc. There is a restaurant attached that has great food and some... More

Foe the size of this small town I would have to say they didn't do a bad job with the Arts center but they could have done better. I deffinately think the could have used the space that the restaurant is in for more art things and displays. The food there is not very good anyway.

The Willingham Theater is an integral part of the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center facility. Offering movies, music, and live theatrical performances, it without a doubt a jewel in the crown of the center.
