The Tennessee Theatre
The Tennessee Theatre is one of the last great movie palaces still in operation. Opening its doors on October 1, 1928, the Tennessee made kings and queens of all who entered its lavish interior. After all, the idea of the movie palace was to create a fantasy land, a place where people could forget the outside world and its troubles - at least while they were inside the castle on Gay Street.

The Tennessee Theatre is still captivating audiences with its ambiance and with the entertainment it has to offer. Besides enchanting crowds with personalities Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh on its big screen, the Tennessee hosts a variety of world-renowned entertainers throughout the year. The theatre is also home to the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and the Knoxville Opera Company.
