About the Wilson Center
Prominently located on Third St. at the northern entrance to historic downtown Wilmington, the CFCC Humanities & Fine Arts Center adds state-of-the-art learning spaces for our region’s students and adult learners in an over 159,000 sq. ft. facility.
The Center will add a major new performance venue to southeastern North Carolina. The over-1,500-1,600 seat performance theater – the largest in the area – is designed to accommodate Broadway touring productions, concerts, symphonic performances, recitals, symposiums, and other events. The performance hall will offer professional-quality lighting systems, rigging, acoustics and orchestra equipment, and will boast two tiers of balconies and two levels of opera boxes for a variety of seating options.
The building also houses a 108-person capacity studio/black box theater and an outdoor conservatory for performances with a 600-person capacity.
