The Tennessee Theatre

A Grand Entertainment Palace

The Tennessee Theatre: A Grand Entertainment Palace by Jack Neely tells the history of the Tennessee Theatre through fascinating narrative and hundreds of images: photographs, advertisements, posters & tickets, and more. This hard-bound, full color, 228-page book tells the unique story of how the Tennessee was planned, designed, and built; how it influenced and shaped entertainment options in Knoxville throughout the 20th century; and how its comprehensive restoration and renovation served as a catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Knoxville in the 21st century. A special thanks to our book sponsors: Regal Entertainment Group, Clayton Foundation, Robin Easter Design and Lithographics, and Visit Knoxville. Designed by Robin Easter Design and printed by Lithographics.
