Knoxville Mayor Don Zoutte says a community group is being formed to start brainstorming ideas about the Knoxville movie theatre. The theatre has been shut down since Labor Day of last year. Zoutte tells KNIA/KRLS News there is a possibility of this group purchasing the theatre. He says that the biggest question mark on the building is the shape the roof is in. If it’s in worse shape than they think, the repair costs would be significant. Zoutte notes that this group is separate from any actual city business. If you are interested in learning more about the community group or joining, call Zoutte at 891-0510.
