Great diversity...a must for families in Wilmington! We keep coming back time and time again and will be seeing the Malpass Brothers very soon!

Having moved from the DC area recently, and being regular attendees at the Kennedy Center, we were missing live performances. Thalian is not KC for certain, but it is a delightful and quite lovely theater. We saw a musical which was done well, good directing, great actors and talent. If you live in the Wilmington area and have not yet attended an event at Thalian...go now!

Thus is a wonderful little theatre in downtown wilmington. They offer plays and weekly movie showings. The box office is most helpful in aiding you in the selection of our seats too. Even if you are not attending a performance, stop in for a visit. Worthwhile for its historical significance.

During the 'regular' season Thalian Hall hosts many different performances. Lots of plays and an occasional special, e.g. The Santaland Diaries, Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain. All excellent performances.

Monday through Wednesday Thalian Hall hosts: Cinematique. These are films that have won awards but are not often available at your local theater.

The theater is beautiful. It was remodeled (@ great cost) approximate one year ago, 2012. Free parking on their lot after 5pm. Free parking at on-street meters after 6:30 p.m.

Note: Cinematique costs $8.00 per person (in 2013).
Most live shows are NOT expensive by big city standards.

My husband and I enjoyed the film, "Silent Mind" and a tour of this wonderfully restored theatre. There seems to be something scheduled almost every night. Great evening!
