“Knoxville's grand entertainment palace”
The magnificent Tennessee Theatre first opened its doors on October 1, 1928 and was hailed as “the South’s most beautiful theatre.” When the first patrons stepped inside downtown’s “movie palace” to see their favorite stars on the silver screen, they paid only 40 cents for matinees and 60 cents for evening shows (children paid only 10 and 15 cents). Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and honored as the Official State Theatre of Tennessee, today's Tennessee Theatre has something for everyone: classical music, vintage films, dance, drama and stellar performances by today's hottest musicians. Local arts organizations such as the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Knoxville Opera at UT Cultural Attractions use the Tennessee Theatre throughout the year. The Theatre is also the site of special events wedding receptions, private parties, corporate meetings and other functions are enhanced by its magnificent interior. It is professionally managed and operated by A.C. Entertainment.
