First time visitor to this theater. Saw on-line and decided to take a chance. What a great theater. We saw Carpenters Remebered, what a fantastic show and what an amazing band. The sound was so good and I don't think you could get a bad seat in the whole place. Had time before show and had the opportunity to visit... More

What a beautiful center this is!!! Intricate detailing inside the hall. The layout was perfect, i doubt there is a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are perfect!! Refreshments limited but not overly pricey and fresh! Assistants everywhere to help you find your seat. Ample parking. Loved the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

What an awesome venue! We recently visited to see The Lettermen for my mother's 73rd birthday, who by the way, put on a FABULOUS show! It was easy access and there is no bad seat in the house! We even got refreshment before the show as we didn't have dinner. They proudly serve Coca-Cola products!!! Thank you for making a... More

Have been here many times and just love it!! Smaller and more intimate than other venues we have been to. Tickets are very reasonable. Local productions are awesome. Staff and volunteers are always wonderful and accommodating!! Great venue!

We went for The Celts Christmas show. The music was great, except when they left some rhythm machine on for one tune. The real reason I am giving them 2 stars are the small seats. I am 6'3" 300#, and even though I was able to select a seat with an arm rest that went up, it was quite uncomfortable... More
