There are basically two types of art houses in America, those that cater to the bluebloods and bluehairs, and those that target edgy indie audiences. Clearly, the Manor falls into the former category (its hit titles tend to be more conventional fare), but within that context, the theater leaves little to be desired. Serving as home to the venerable Charlotte Film Society doesn't hurt, either.
