船坞街戏院
地方性遗产

船坞街戏院位于南卡罗来纳 州查理斯敦的市中心,它也许是该市最多人拍摄的单一景点。另外,它也是美国境内最重要的景点之一。为什么呢?因为它是美国境内第一座,专为戏剧表演所设计的建筑物。

但这座戏院并不是1736年开幕时的那栋建筑物。1740年时,原本的建筑物毁于一场火灾内,1809年,另一栋建筑物又在原地址兴建完成,以农场主人旅馆开幕。后来,当这栋旅馆于1930年代重新进行改建时,加建了18世纪风格的舞台及观众席,当它于1937年重新开幕时,名称就改成现在的船坞街戏院了。

现在,这栋建筑物就跟它原先设计的功能一样,仍是一座戏院,而查理斯敦市则保留了该地历史中,一个不可或缺的部分。


The Dock Street Theater in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, may be the single most photographed spot in the city. It is also one of the most important in America. Why? It was the first building in America designed solely for theatrical performances.

But the theater is not the same one that opened in 1736. In 1740, the building was destroyed by fire. When another building was constructed on the site in 1809, it opened as the Planter's Hotel. When the hotel was remodeled in the 1930s, a stage and auditorium in the style of the 18th century were constructed, and the building reopened in 1937 as the Dock Street Theater.

The building now serves its original purpose, and the city of Charleston has retained an important part of its history.
