The palmetto theater

A drive down Hampton’s Lee Avenue brings you to the sight of an architectural treasure. The Palmetto Theater has proudly stood on this spot since 1946. This post-war building was once a social center in the Hampton community. The front features a prominent, ornate marquee with stylized neon lettering and geometric patterns. The theater was designed with a stage which was used for live performances.


Now owned and operated by Hampton Friends of the Arts (A 501(c)(3)nonprofit, this historic building is once again destined to be a hub of activity in our rural community. In the summer of 2021, a fundraising campaign raised more than $50,000 to refurbish the interior and equip the theater with state of the art digital projection and sound. We proudly invite you to take a short drive to the beautiful Palmetto , enjoy a movie, a concert, or an art exhibit in the lobby's new "Palmetto Gallery" and support the arts in rural South Carolina.
