Wilmington, NC Hotel Makes Supporting the Arts a Priority

For the 16th year, Residence Inn Wilmington Landfall Is Recognized as a Platinum Sponsor of Historic Thalian Hall

WILMINGTON, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - Since 1858, Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts has been in near continuous use, providing the local community with a space for showcasing the best in performance art from the region and nationwide. As one of the oldest theatres in the United States, Thalian Hall's carefully crafted vision is "to create a culturally vibrant community by expanding education, entertainment, and imagination through the arts." Residence Inn Wilmington Landfall is proud to help Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts exact this worthy mission.

One of just two hotels in Wilmington, NC with the Platinum level sponsorship distinction, Residence Inn Wilmington Landfall has contributed at least $10,000 just this year to Thalian Hall and the enrichment of Wilmington's cultural heritage.

Through generous sponsorships like this, Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts is able to bring a wide range of unique and diverse events to Wilmington. A Capella sensation The Swingle Singers will showcase their eclectic mix of songs and talents on October 11th, while the hilarious political satire musical The Capitol Steps comes to town the following weekend on October 18th. These are events worth traveling for, and guests visiting to see these wonderful performances won't find a hotel near Wilmington Airport more committed to the local arts community than Residence Inn Wilmington Landfall.

Visit for those evening walks on the beach wrapped in a big sweatshirt, but don't miss out on a show. As a Platinum friend of Thalian Hall, this Wrightsville Beach, NC hotel has advanced access to ticket sales, with prices rarely exceeding $40.00 per ticket.
