Classic films are also aired, running the gamut from the 1944 romance Frenchman's Creek to 1985's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Sundance Short Films and acclaimed documentaries also feature prominently in the schedule. The Carolina Theatre is known for plenty of kid-friendly programming and great variety.
