Williamson Square Cinema

Opened November 23, 1988. This inauspicious multiplex is nestled behind a vast frontage of retail shops and asphalt. The Williamson Square as well another other ill fated multiplex across the street from it (Watson Glen) seemed to have been an afterthought to whomever developed the shopping centers in which they abide. Both are very well hidden from view and not directly accessible from the main road requiring one to maneuver through vast parking lots and behind stores to reach them.

The Williamson Square Cinema was sanctified and was converted into a church. The Watson Glen has hence become a gym and the faithful two screen, vintage 1939 Franklin Cinema, less than two miles away is still packing them in and bring them back again.

Here are a couple of 2006 photos of this former Carmike property.

You might want to check the address on this one—I think it’s actually 1113 Murfreesboro Rd. There was never a theater at 230 Franklin Rd. The property is an old factory turned into restaurants and retail.
