The theatre, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, originally only showed movies when it opened up in 1928. In 1981 it began a gradual shift from being only a single-screen theater to a performing arts venue with multiple uses. Restorations to the building began in 2003, and reopened in 2005 with the help of public and private donations.
Today, one can listen to classical music, watch a vintage film, or catch a performance by their favorite performer. Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Knoxville Opera, and UT Cultural Attractions also share this theatre year round. The theater hosts wedding receptions, private parties, corporate events as well.
Performers like Kacey Musgraves, John Legend, and Young the Giant have all performed here. Broadway shows like Fiddler on the Roof have also been performed at the venue as well!
