Franklin Cinema

The downtown Franklin Cinema opened in 1937. 70 years later it had to close. The heritage foundation of Franklin is raising money to bring back the theatre. It will be used as a multi-purpose venue for entertainment. It was always fun to go to a movie there and everyone misses it. Hopefully, it will be back soon.
