The only record that I have found to date on the Powell Theatre is from a 1985 article that gave no other information aside that it was part of the Consolidated circuit. If you have any information on the Powell Theatre, please update.

The Powell Cinema was built as part of a strip shopping center around 1980. It was a twin that each seated 175. It was closed in the late nineties and the space was converted to retail.

I believe it had three screens at one point. I saw “Return of the Living Dead” here in 1985. The space is now a Knoxville Area Rescue Mission thrift store.

The Powell Twin was always a twin. Consolidated operated the theatre in the 1980’s, and Carmike got it in 1989 through the buyout.

One of the only memories I have of this theater is when I saw “The Pebble and the Penguin” here in 1995.

I think I might have also seen “Once Upon a Forest”, “Toy Story”, and “Muppet Treasure Island” here as well.
