Fan favorites, like White Christmas and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,
return to The Historic Franklin Theatre and go on sale this Friday.
We are excited to announce Republic Bank as the presenting sponsor for its holiday movie screenings throughout December. As part of their month-long “Christmas in July” promotion, all holiday movies will go on sale Friday, July 22 at 11:00 AM.
“Holiday movies at The Franklin Theatre have become a staple for many families in middle Tennessee,” said The Franklin Theatre’s Managing Director, Eric Dilts. “Our 2022 lineup is sure to excite all audiences with the beloved classics and fan-favorites. These holiday screenings often sell out, so everyone is encouraged to make their holiday viewing plans now if they can. Also, as a corporate partner that is helping keep this tradition alive, we’re thrilled to have Republic Bank work with us this year to bring these cherished movies to our historic theatre”.
“Republic Bank, for over 40 years, has really strived to be a community partner in all the markets that we serve. The Franklin Theatre, to us, is a treasure here. Not only for the historical aspect, but for the entertainment value that it brings,” said Chad Hart, Tennessee Market President for Republic Bank. “It’s become a time-honored tradition for many families in Williamson County to enjoy some of the holiday shows, and we’re excited to be part of it this year.”

FRANKLIN THEATRE GETS IN THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
Live Music and Christmas Film Fest Featured
FRANKLIN, Tennessee (October 14, 2015) – The marquee of the Franklin Theatre shines every day, but always seems to lift the spirits a little more during the Christmas season. Lights and wreaths will adorn the façade nearer to Thanksgiving, but tickets for events inside the historic landmark are already on sale.
A variety of live concerts and classic holiday-themed movies will again celebrate the venue’s 78-year tradition that is always a highlight for families and friends to enjoy.
Among the award winning musical artists slated for December are Mandy Barnett (Dec. 5), John Scofield & Jon Cleary (Dec. 10), Melinda Dolittle (Dec. 11), Suzy Bogguss (Dec. 12), John Berry (Dec. 15), Exile (Dec. 17), Phil Vassar (Dec. 18), Asleep at the Wheel (Dec. 19), and Cab Calloway Orchestra with two shows on New Year’s Eve.
Plans are also in the works for an extra special evening (Dec. 21) of songs and stories entitled “Simply Christmas” to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Franklin Theatre also announces a lineup of holiday films such as Polar Express, Elf, Grinch, Home Alone, It’s A Wonderful Life, and White Christmas. Though many are staples on television, there’s nothing like seeing them on the big screen where they originally came to life. A holiday movie on Main Street is an entirely different event when enjoyed with so many others.
“The holidays are a special time to create new memories and remember old ones with people you care about and want to enjoy special experiences with,” says executive director Dan Hays. “It’s a special time to get together and great music and the stories in film help us touch people with unique experiences. We’ve put together a calendar with the hope to get everyone in the spirit of the season.”
