Susan Gray of Foundation for the Carolinas walks through the balcony at the Carolina Theatre in uptown Charlotte Friday, Oct. 3, 2014. Among the grandest of the foundation’s current projects is a push to revive the North Tryon Street corridor, starting with renovating the gutted Carolina Theatre, built in 1927. The foundation plans to turn the site into a civic space for public meetings, symposiums and debates. The theater, which closed in 1978, sits next to the foundation’s office on North Tryon.
