The Tivoli Theatre, also known as the Tivoli and the “Jewel of the South”, is a historic theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that opened on March 19, 1921. No expense was spared to make this one of the most lavish and luxurious theaters Tennesseans had ever seen. The Tivoli Theatre featured a domed ceiling in the lobby, with gilded plasterwork and imported European crystal chandeliers. The theater originally hosted both vaudeville and silent movies, but was wired for sound in 1929. In 1989 the Tivoli was brilliantly and painstakingly restored to its 1920’s appearance, along with a new sound and light system, a larger stage, new dressing rooms, a green room, and rehearsal space. Today, the Tivoli Theatre is home to the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, as well as concerts, dance, and Broadway shows.
