My husband and I stopped by during the day to tour the theater. We had the run of the theater the entire time--even as we went floor by floor and walked around to all of the boxes and seats. I recommend stopping by if you're interested and have 15-30 minutes.

There's also a little pamphlet with information about the facility. The cost for entry is $2 per person.

I work here from time to time doing shows its an old hemp house. It's not a large theater but great architecture and feel.

Went to see Oak Ridge Boys in concert. The show was fantastic and it being held in this old opera house made it extra special. Check out their calendar of events!

I love this opera house. I feel like I'm back in my childhood whenever I go there. The decor is beautiful. They also have comfortable seats and great acoustics, plus a variety of great shows
