The Commons 6 was a nice hall as suburban halls went, which it did as soon as Carmike opened the 17 screen Windsong 17 the street. The building was torn down and a completely new retail store was built on the site. When in Knoxville do visit the former site of the Commons 6 as one of the best Asian restaurants is right next door. “Taste of Tai” is worth the trip to Knoxville.

At the time this opened it was the fanciest theater in town, with the very best in late-80s swank: marble floors, green “velvet” seats, brass sconces, grand curtains over the screens, etc. Not sure when it opened, but I distinctly recall seeing 1988’s “Torch Song Trilogy” there.

@ Will Dunklin: I agree, Taste of Thai is one of Knoxville’s best restaurants.

I remember seeing “Total Recall” at this theater with my father on opening night back in 1990. It was packed.

The Commons 6 opened on April 15, 1988 to replace the Cedar Bluff Twin. The Theatre closed on March 30, 2000 after being replaced by the Windsong 16.

This theater was purchased by Carmike sometime in the 1990s.
