1937 Club - Franklin-Theatre

Join The 1937 Club

Our marquee first brightened Franklin’s Main Street in 1937 in the midst of the Great Depression as an invitation to be entertained by motion pictures and to create memories with friends and neighbors.

Today, we invite your support and to join a community – named in honor of the year of our founding – who believes in our mission to expand on these traditions in one of the great showplaces in America.
