We love the family friendly atmosphere and shows they offer. I have been on multiple occasions from anniversary, girls night, and birthday. We love the beautiful building and the great variety of shows they offer. The prices are really affordable and you know you can just relax and have a great time because they only offer family friendly shows. The concessions are actually affordable and not those over priced food and drink options you expect to see at a movie theater or other live event.

We have been to many shows here and have enjoyed everyone.
The auditorium is huge, clean and very nice. The acoustics are good and the seating comfortable. Concession stand nice. Next to The Factory.

We just attended the show "Sinatra Forever" starring Rick Michel. The performance by Mr. Michel was excellent! The event center itself is a superior facility, as good (or even better!) then one found in a larger city. The seating was comfortable and most all seats have a great view of the stage. The decor inside was very attractive and everything well maintained. Plenty of good parking and a great restaurant on the premises (The Boiler Room) for dinner before the show.

If you are visiting Franklin or a resident, The Smoky Mountain Center should not be missed. They are scheduling some great performances and the ticket prices are very reasonable for the shows they offer.

Another great reason to make Franklin a stop on your travels. Where else can you catch a professional performance and have a few of the beautiful mountains too!

Been to the Center several times and it is a first-class facility. (I hate the phrase "world class") Expect the amenities of a performance center in say Atlanta or New York but on a smaller scale. Elevators for the handicapped, plenty of rest rooms, attractive decor outside and in. Seat are very comfortable. Concessions NOT OVERPRICED! Plenty of parking within easy walking distance. Computerized ticket system. Website maintained as it should be.

If you are in the area, check out the schedule and be amazed at this superb "performance center" in lil' ole' Franklin, NC.
