As we continue to navigate the everchanging COVID-19 pandemic, we are closed until further notice. The Tennessee Theatre always prioritizes the safety and security of its audiences, artists and staff, and this includes health safety. We will provide an update once a confirmed re-opening date has been confirmed.
As a nonprofit arts organization, closing our doors to the public means a significant loss of revenue. While our top priority is keeping our patrons, visiting artists, and staff safe and secure, funds from tickets, concessions sales, and rental fees are the main sources of income and contribute significantly to our financial stability. This closure greatly affects our ability to preserve this beautiful historic theater, and to share it with everyone in the community. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us offset the costs already incurred for these cancelled events and the lost revenue during our closure, you can do so here.
We are making every effort to reschedule affected shows. For shows that are canceled, tickets purchased through authorized ticket sellers (Ticketmaster and the Tennessee Theatre Box Office) will be automatically refunded at the point of purchase. No action is needed to receive the refund. For postponed shows, patrons should hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled performance date, once determined. If patrons cannot attend the rescheduled date, they may contact the box office for a refund.
During this closure, the Tennessee Theatre Box Office will also be closed and phones will not be staffed. Patrons who wish to purchase tickets for future shows should do so online at tennesseetheatre.com. For questions or inquiries, please email [email protected] as we will be monitoring email during the closure. Please note that response time may be slow depending on the volume of email received.
Some artists may elect to cancel or reschedule their shows. In the case of such change, we will notify all ticket purchasers of the cancellation or postponement, update website listings accordingly, and post across our social networks.
We are continuing to monitor the overall situation, paying close attention to the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control, Tennessee Department of Health, and the Knox County Health Department. We will remain in regular communication with the Knox County Health Department and abide by recommendation or mandates as they advise that may affect the re-opening of the Theatre.
