“Awesome vintage theater with concerts!”
Review of Franklin Theatre

Franklin Theatre

Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The Franklin Theatre opened in the summer of 1937 when the marquee first illuminated Main Street. The downtown historic landmark closed in 2007 but reopened as a 300 seat venue in 2011 with an investment of more than $8 million to again enrich, inspire and connect our community. It still features classic and recent release movies, community and private events - but most exciting are the live concerts by diverse original talents such as Sheryl Crow, Art Garfunkel, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Vince Gill, Keb Mo and many more.

“Awesome vintage theater with concerts!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

We were in town and stumbled across a Sheryl Crow concert. We were going to see a movie in this tiny beautifully restored place, but it is amazing for concerts because there is no bad seat in the house.

“Love this Theatre”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We have visited the Franklin Theatre twice over two years. Both times we saw Beausoleil, a favorite of ours. While the show never disappoints, I have to comment on the theatre. It is beautifully redone and the people who work and volunteer there are about the friendliest that we have ever met and we travel a lot. We drove from Delaware to see the show so it was a mini trip for us. If we lived in the area, we would go frequently. Coming back this year was like meeting old friends. If we lived in Tennesse, it would be Franklin.

What a jewel for Middle Tennessee! Franklin Theatre is a great place to visit by yourself, with a date, or just with your family! You can see a movie, listen to a world-name musical act, or see a play. This is a definite stop on your next visit to Franklin! Suggestion: check out their website before you visit.

“wonderful venue for live music”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you get the chance to hear live music at the Franklin Theatre or a play/musical please do so. It's beautiful, the sounds is wonderful and it's a great thing to do after dinner downtown.

“A new destination.”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Don't know what took us so long to get there, but we know the way now! What a wonderful theatre. Not only are the seats comfortable, but there isn't a bad seat in the house. Great place.
