Celebrating 90 Years in 2018!

With over 150 events each year, the fully restored historic Tennessee Theatre has something for everyone: Broadway shows, classic films, opera, concerts, dance and more! After a $25.5 million restoration completed in January 2005, the theatre is a world class performing arts center and has welcomed over 1.7 million guests since its reopening.

The Tennessee Theatre opened as an opulent movie palace in October 1928. Designed by Chicago architects Graven & Mayger, the Theatre has a Spanish-Moorish style interior that incorporates elements from all parts of the world: Czechoslovakian crystals in the French-style chandeliers, Italian terrazzo flooring in the Grand Lobby, and Asian influences in the carpet and drapery patterns.

Come experience the unforgettable at the Official State Theatre of Tennessee!
