I was amazed that a sleepy little mountain town had such a place when I moved here recently. What a lovely venue. They have something for the whole family. From pajama/movie night for the kids, to Fiddler on The Roof for the adults. ( marvelous production by the way ) The facility is brand spanking new. Seating was roomy and... More

Who would have thought that a small town like Franklin, NC, tucked away in the mountains, could hold such venue! I've attended several concerts here and they all rate higher than some big cities (Asheville, Greenville, Atlanta, etc). First, there is the broad spectrum of entertainment offered; e.g.: from local talent to country legend Loretta Lynn, from bluegrass ballads to... More

What a great place to see a concert, play or anything else! I've been here several times and have never been disappointed! The shows start on time and you usually get the chance to meet the performers.

First time visitor to this theater. Saw on-line and decided to take a chance. What a great theater. We saw Carpenters Remebered, what a fantastic show and what an amazing band. The sound was so good and I don't think you could get a bad seat in the whole place. Had time before show and had the opportunity to visit... More

What a beautiful center this is!!! Intricate detailing inside the hall. The layout was perfect, i doubt there is a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are perfect!! Refreshments limited but not overly pricey and fresh! Assistants everywhere to help you find your seat. Ample parking. Loved the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

What an awesome venue! We recently visited to see The Lettermen for my mother's 73rd birthday, who by the way, put on a FABULOUS show! It was easy access and there is no bad seat in the house! We even got refreshment before the show as we didn't have dinner. They proudly serve Coca-Cola products!!! Thank you for making a... More
