Once upon a time, in the glorious era before downloads and strip mall multiplexes, going to see a movie was a really memorable experience. Filmmakers and exhibitors built huge theatres near mythical places in which to show their own mythical creations. Most of these 'movie palaces' have disappeared, victims of changing times and tastes. Only a few remain, and one of the grandest is still flourishing in Tennessee. Tennessee Crossroads visited our Official State Theatre, The Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, TN.
If a restaurant is off the beaten path and the owner sometimes refuses to make dishes his customers want, you might think that owner was asking for empty seats and angry guests, but what Tennessee Crossroads recently found out is that if the food is fresh and flavorful enough diners will seek out that restaurant, which is the case with the Plaid Apron in Knoxville, TN.
You know you don't have to travel very far in Tennessee for an outing to a really nice Zoo.
