Why Knoxville Needs Central Cinema

BY WILLIAM MAHAFFEY
@ VOL 24 ON AUG 17, 2017

Knoxville has grown into an incredibly cool city over the last few years, and a one screen indie theater could be the perfect addition to the growing list of awesome things to do in our city. The mainstream movie going experience has become less and less desirable over the years, and William Mahaffey informs how Central Cinema can become a hub for all of the film lovers seeking a better cinema experience here. We will also provide a fitting home for the many film festivals that have sprung up here over the years. On top of that, it will help with the growth of the North Knoxville/Happy Holler commercial area and make it an even more desirable hot spot for the Knoxville community.
