Central Cinema: Knoxville Horror Film Fest

  • October 18, 2018 — October 21, 2018

Category: Film

As many of you know, we got started showing movies through Knoxville Horror Film Fest, and we're coming up on our 10th anniversary this October. We've been a little quiet so far this year because we've been busy launching the theater, but we're excited to finally share expanded details on what we've got planned for our TENTH ANNUAL FESTIVAL October 18-21.

If you're not a horror fan, no worries! We will still be programming other types of films in October, there will just be a lot more scary options than usual.

Central Cinema Screenings

Category: Film

Central Cinema is a community moviehouse located in the heart of North Knoxville's Happy Holler neighborhood. We open 45 minutes before the day’s first showtime and close our concession stand as the final film lets out.

Every weekend we present a selection of classic films and/or first-run independents, usually including both Family Matinees & cult movie-oriented Late Shows. This standard programming is complemented during the week by special film & arts events of all sorts. (Click through to our Films page to browse current & upcoming programming.)

Central Cinema's single auditorium features 4K digital projection and 96 seats custom-decorated with movie moments selected by friends and supporters. At the end of the adjoining gallery hallway is our concessions lounge, featuring both inside seating and a deck for good times & discussion before and after film screenings. Central Cinema offers a variety of food and drink options, from movie theater staples to locally-sourced treats and a selection of canned & bottled beers.

TICKET PRICING: $10 Evening, $9 Students & Military, $8 Matinee & Seniors, $7 Kids, $15 Double Features
