Indie folk-pop group Earleine will open. $15 in advance or $18 at the door.
Ghostlights are a longtime theater tradition in which a light remains lit on the stage when there are no performers, keeping the spirit of the theater alive. For many months in 2020, the Carolina’s ghostlight was burning, ready for live entertainment to return.
The Ghostlight Concert Series at the Carolina Theatre is presented with support from ArtsGreensboro.
Tickets are on sale at CarolinaTheatre.com. Audience members will be asked to wear masks in the lobby and when moving throughout the theater. Concessions can be enjoyed once seated in the auditorium.

Classic movies Carolina Theatre has brought back its Carolina Classic Movie Series with a lineup of screenings.
Under COVID-19 guidelines, the theater will be able to host audiences of up to 250 guests in the auditorium at 310 S. Greene St. Seating is general admission with social pods of two, four and six available. Guests will be required to wear masks, but the full line of concessions will be available.
Tickets are $7 at carolinatheatre.com. The box office doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for day-of purchases. Carolina Classic Movie Series passes also will be accepted at the door.
Upcoming films include:
7 p.m. June 10: “The Princess Bride.” A fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman and her one true love who must find her after a long separation, battling through the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited. Based on William Goldman’s novel of the same name, “The Princess Bride” is staged as a book read by a grandfather to his sick-at-home grandson. More than a simpering love story, however, fencing, fighting, torture, death, giants, pirates and yes — true love — fill the screen.
7 p.m. June 16 and 18: “Imitation of Life.” When they first meet, Lora Meredith and Annie Johnson find they have a lot in common: they are both single mothers struggling to make a life for themselves and their daughters. They soon share a tiny apartment with their daughters, with Annie becoming the caretaker of Lora’s child, Suzie. While Lora’s thirst for fame threatens her relationship with Suzie, Annie’s light-skinned daughter Sarah Jane struggles with her Black identity.
