FRANKLIN, TN — After closing two years ago, funds have been collected to save the Franklin Cinema.

The Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County has matched a $1.5 million challenge grant from the Martin Foundation for the restoration of the Franklin Theatre, the organization announced Tuesday.

The former movie theater on Main Street closed in 2007. The project aims to restore the 1937 theater as a public performance, movie and meeting venue.
