Did all the guys and gals that worked in the theatre business in Knoxville just vanish? For a city to be this big it is amazing very little conversations and theatre stories,just like Columbia,S.C.Oh, I forgot they are College towns,

I can recall seeing “The Empire Strikes Back” here.

@Mike, you’re right, Knoxville is a big college town and so most of our theater employees only stay a few years.

I worked at that theater in the late 80’s. It was my first job, and I have very fond memories of it. The theater was rarely crowded, except on the weekends, and there wasn’t much to do except flirt with the cute concession stand girls. I remember Ronnie McHone and his assistant manager David Fry, nice guys who went to work at the 6 plex a few miles down the road. I could go on and on about about that theater, what a great place for a first job.

This theatre was opened on December 21, 1976 by ABC Southeastern Theatres. It had two auditoriums each seating 375. The first movies were “Nickelodeon” and “Great American Adventure”.

Ownership changed to Plitt, to Cineplex Odeon, and then to Carmike. After Carmike build the Commons Six Theatre less than half a mile away, they closed the Cedar Bluff Theatre on April 15, 1988.
