grand theater

The organization working to bring Knoxville’s Grand Theater back to life has reached an important milestone–non-profit status by the IRS. Dylan Morse, with the Grand Theater Foundation, tells KNIA and KRLS News that the group received notification this week. Morse says it’s time for Knoxville to have a movie theater again, as well as a space for other performances. Fundraising continues, and Morse believes that the citizens and businesses of Knoxville are up to the task of raising the $500,000 necessary to make the Grand a modern theater–and the center of a vibrant downtown.
