Operated under Charlotte based Stewart and Everett Theatres. It closed in the mid-1980’s before Carmike acquired all of the Stewart and Everett movie houses.

Stewart and Everett were running this theatre by 1961. And they operated THE EMBASSY THEATRE until its closing in 1985. It was a discount dollar house when it closed in 1985.

In fact, Charlotte-based Stewart and Everett operated two moviehouses in the greater Henderson/Vance County area…one was the EMBASSY THEATRE located Downtown,and the other was THE CINEMA 1 & 2 at Henderson Mall.

THE EMBASSY THEATRE was the last of the Downtown moviehouses in Henderson,and it closed under Stewart and Everett in 1985,when it came a discount dollar house. And this was before Carmike took over Stewart and Everett.

The only theatre that Carmike operated after the acquisition of S & E was the CINEMA 1 & 2,and it was renamed THE CINEMA TWIN.
