Every event is an experience at the historic Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville. Originally opened in 1928, the facility has been restored to its original grandeur but now features an expanded stage and orchestra pit, modern acoustics and improved technology.
The exquisite performing arts venue, which continues to reach record-breaking attendance levels, is considered one of the most prized buildings in Tennessee. The theatre also hosts a mighty Wurlitzer Organ, originally installed in 1928 at a cost of $50,000 and later painstakingly rebuilt and restored piece by piece.
The theatre originally was hailed as the South’s most beautiful theatre, an amazing movie palace. Today the beauty remains and the early movies of the silver screen have been replaced by a wide variety of events and concerts.
