Note:

A favorite landmark on the main street of the state capital, the Art Deco style movie theater—considered Raleigh’s foremost movie theater—was one of many designed by Stillwell, most of which have been lost. This one was razed in the 1970s when Fayetteville Street was made into a mall. See Mitchell, Building as History and the website “Going to the Show” for images of this and many others of his theaters.
