The Walker Theatre Inside Soldiers And Sailors Memorial Auditorium To Host Open House

Thursday, November 30, 2017

The Walker Theatre inside the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium is celebrating its re-launch by opening its doors to the public for an open house and celebration on Thursday, Dec. 7, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

“The Walker is a wonderful theatre and the Tivoli Theatre Foundation is proud to have invested significantly in its future,” said Nick Wilkinson with the Tivoli Theatre Foundation.

“In order to let the community experience these improvements, and because many Chattanoogans are still curious about the Walker, we are thrilled to open the doors for a special evening and re-acquaint the community with this unique, intimate venue. Please come by the venue, enjoy discounted drinks and refreshments, tour the space, and help us recognize some of the team who helped us re-launch this important Chattanooga asset!”

The Tivoli Theatre Foundation has recently invested over $300,000 in improvements to the Walker Theatre, including a new state-of-the-art sound system; new lighting rigs and spotlights; updated pit seating; as well as an updated concessions and lobby area, in an effort to deliver a world-class concert and entertainment experience.

In addition, the Tivoli Theatre Foundation has begun aggressively promoting and programming the Walker Theatre and has over 10 shows currently on-sale including Steve Earle and the Dukes, Puddles Pity Party, the Steep Canyon Rangers, and many more world class shows set to announce soon.

But I also believe my ... (click for more)
