@ VOL 14 ON FEB 12, 2015

Like any city, mobility is key to Knoxville’s future development and its larger success as a strong and diverse community. While increased access to greenways, the Urban Wilderness, and a movement back to downtown have provided alternative options to its automotive centered culture, the automobile looks to serve Knoxville for years to come. But what will that look like? And what are the challenges that exist between serving the needs of Knoxville residents and the environment in which Knoxville works and enjoys?

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.
