I have seen numerous shows here and there is nothing to say bad about The Franklin Theatre. First, there is plenty of free parking. Beet and wine sells for half of the cost at The Ryman or other nearby venues. The acoustics are great and...More

The venue is intimate and the sound system is excellent. Unlike many small venues, the seats aren't jammed so tight that your knees cannot fit when you are 6'2". However, the seats are tightly placed side to side so keep that in mind. Some events...More

There isn't a bad seat in the house and the acoustics were great. The floor is sloped like the old theaters. The only problem is when someone spills a drink, it rolls down and gets everything wet that is sitting on the floor. The staff...More

Nice place.....very retro, great job with the restoration. The air conditioning certainly works! I don't mind supporting the historic foundation.....what I do mind is the sneaky $1 per ticket, undisclosed up charge. It's not on the website or posted at the box office. Just left...More
