About the Center for the Arts

USCB's vision calls for the Center for the Arts (CFA), formerly known as the USCB Performing Arts Center (PAC), to serve as a regional focal point for the arts through quality performances, gallery events, and academic degree programs. The CFA has been the cultural hub for Beaufort County for over thirty years housing the Beaufort Orchestra, USCB Festival Series, Beaufort Theatre Company, and countless performances of internationally acclaimed performing artists. USCB has a long-standing tradition of endorsing and supporting the arts, recognizing the importance of family and community programming such as Beaufort Children's Theater and PJ and Play. Additionally, USCB provides the use of a 460-seat performing arts venue to community groups, dance studios, festivals, and the Met Opera Live in HD.

This year, the CFA is proud to be joining the Emerging Pictures network of cinemas. This partnership offers a rare opportunity for the Beaufort community  to enjoy pristine presentations of first run independent, and foreign, narrative films and documentaries, as well as a selection of specialized events – such as the Bolshoi Ballet – all in crystal-clear High Definition.
