The Vaudeville Cafe is moving, but it is not going far.

The murder mystery dinner theater is leaving its longtime home at the corner of Market Street and Aquarium Way (Second Street).

The new location will be right across Aquarium Way at the brick building that initially featured a candy store.

At the old location, it was above Chee Burger Chee Burger and Ghenghis Khan Grill.

It will be above another restaurant at the new site.

An employee said there will be less space, but there will be meals served at the tables rather than a buffet.

The Vaudeville Cafe is not currently featuring stand up comedy, but may resume doing so in about a month.

Vaudeville Cafe was opened by Chris and Jennifer Hampton on Tremont Street in North Chattanooga. It moved to the current site in 2003.

Their erroneous and hysteric forecasts are in my opinion purposefully done to benefit their corporate owners so viewers and readers flock to their felonious broadcasts and yellow ...
