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 share memorable experiences with friends and neighbors.

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