History in the making
The last movie theatre in Wilmington, The Rialto, closed in 1982 and was later demolished. Twenty years later, movies return to Wilmington with the opening of Theatre N at Nemours. Located in The Nemours Building at CityCenter@Wilmington — 1007 Orange Street — the theater underwent renovations that include new seats, painting, carpeting, movie screen and a concession area. It is located on the first floor of a 14-story building in Downtown Wilmington formerly owned by the DuPont Company. Today, the newly renovated property is owned by the Buccini/Pollin Group.
