Join us for costumes, cartoons, candy, and tours! This open house pays homage to the memorable Saturday morning clubs of our history that offered children’s programming, movies, and cartoons. Children (ages 12 and under) are welcome to come dressed in their family-friendly Halloween costume. A short reel of cartoons will be shown at intervals between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each screening will be introduced with organ music played by house organist Freddie Brabson on the Mighty Wurlitzer. Mast General Store will have their old fashioned candy available at trick or treat stations throughout the Theatre and there will be a face painting station! The theater will be open to the public for self-guided tours, including dressing rooms. For guests interested in taking a tour, the entrance to the dressing room area is located in the lower lobby. Popcorn and soda will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to the Historic Tennessee Theatre Foundation. (Costumes must be family friendly, not scary, and toy weapons will not be permitted.)
