Work is still not complete but is slated to finish in late 2023. Like so many other construction projects during the pandemic, material shortages and other problems have caused many setbacks.

Work is underway to totally renovate this space for live performances for the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre. It’s totally gutted inside with new steelwork in place for the balcony and a new stage area. The exterior will be restored to its original looking movie theater roots. Seating capacity will be about 350 with around a $3 million budget. Completion is planned for late 2020 or early 2021.
