Roxy Theater is Re-Opening!

    The 1930 movie theater located at 827 Meridian St. will be under renovation starting this month. After more than 20 years of inactivity, East Nashville’s Roxy Theater is getting a face lift and re-do and will most likely be open by the fall. The area theater will keeps its look but the focus of the structure will be live music and art performances. It will mainly be used for live performances but will also show movies!

    In addition to the theater, Solomon’s Woodland Studios will also be part of the new venue. The original studio, located on Woodland St was destroyed in the 1998 tornadoes. Solomon plans to reopen Woodland Studios with Roxy Theater

    “It would be tough for it to sustain on films alone, but this neighborhood certainly loves music and artistic events,” Silverman said. “There’s potential there, so it’s great Solomon is preserving this historic venue.”

    There is still some funding needed to complete the project. It will cost about $700,000 to replace the 660 seat venue, implement a sprinkler system and rehab the stage. “We don’t have a new investor yet, but I’ve sold part of the property,” Solomon said. “I think that development will jump-start this whole project.”

    The property next to the theater has been sold to Urban Housing Solutions, this compnay will us the building at 307 Wilbur St. for apartment and retail. Brent Elrod, project manager for UHS, says “I think our project will complement the traffic and happenings at the Roxy, so that’ll be a great attraction for all of East Nashville.”

    What a great addition to the development of East Nashville! More information Here.
