The Pioneer Theatre: A Historical Gem in Manteo, NC

The Pioneer Theatre has been a loved and cherished spot for locals and visitors to Manteo, NC. This carefully treasured theatre boasts being the oldest family-operated theatre in the United States. It’s English Tudor-style architecture and attention to detail brings each visitor back to the days of old.

Whether you need a romantic escape, some evening fun or a rainy day activity, the Pioneer Theatre is a great stop. It originally opened in Manteo, NC in 1918 by George W. Creef Jr. It moved to its current location in 1937 and has been owned and operated by Creef family ever since. They have worked hard to maintain the beauty of the building and to provide an entertainment experience that is family-oriented and affordable. There is a nominal fee for entry and refreshments are inexpensive so an evening here does not empty the pocketbook!

The interior has been recently remodeled with new, comfortable seats and drapes that enhance the relaxing, cozy atmosphere. The theatre is open Monday thru Sunday with an evening show each night from 8:00pm – 10:00pm. Movies change weekly on Fridays.

A Ton of Love Food Drive at North Carolina Aquarium

Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to think of others. While your mind may be on flowers, chocolates and the Hallmark card that perfectly states your sentiments, there is something else you can be a part of.

The Ton of Love Food Drive is a way to show some love to others. The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, NC is spearheading this event with a goal of collecting one ton of food for local families.

You have until Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014, to visit the Roanoke Island Food Pantry to drop off your non-perishable food items. This dedicated food pantry helps local families all year and shelves tend be a bit sparse after the holidays. A few items will go a long way in blessing a family in need so raid your pantry at home or fill a couple of extra bags the next time you go to the grocery store.

Need some ideas?
  • Cans of soup and stew
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned meats such as tuna and salmon
  • Peanut butter
  • Rice, beans and pasta
  • Coffee and tea bags

Visit the aquarium’s website or call (252) 473-3494 for more information.

This could be a fun way of getting the whole family involved in finding creative ways to help others. The North Carolina Aquarium is a great place that our guests at The White Doe Inn love to spend a day. Let’s support this great cause and spread some Valentine’s Day love!
