Restored to its old glory, the Tennesse Theatre makes a great venue for concerts, plays, musicals, etc. Enjoy the beauty of the venue while listening to your favorite musical artist. We have been here many times. My favorites: Allison Krause and Bill Cosby concerts.

It is really a huge, magnificent and opulent example of the day of the grand theater. Try to go when the organ is playing or to a symphony or operatic performance.

We love going to events at the TN Theatre. It is beautiful, grand and makes me feel like a 1930's movie star when I am there. I love that it has been renovated a few times, but the original charm remains. I do wish they had a restroom on the main level that was easier to get to.

I've attended the Tennessee Theatre many times to see concerts and performers, but this was a first to hear an author. Elizabeth has an enduring relationship with her readers and it was a real treat to be in attendance at an event sponsored by the Friends of the Library. As always, the Tennessee is majestic and memorable in every way. Great bar service, terrific staff, wonderful acoustics and everything magical a theatre should be.

Went to see Celtic Thunder in this theatre. The restoration is gorgeous. Seats are
really comfortable, the ushers very helpful. They have a really good snack bar area
as you come into the theatre. If you have a chance to go please do. Hopefully
Celtic Thunder will be back there next year.
