About The Tennessee Theatre
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Knoxville! The Tennessee Theatre opened in 1928, featuring the movie The Fleet’s In, starring the legendary Clara Bow. Other classic movies were premiered there through the years as well, in addition to stage productions and various music performances.
The building, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was refurbished in the late 1960s, and again in 1981. Today, the theatre hosts a variety of performers and productions, such as BB King, Alice Cooper, and the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
