OUR PRINCESS IS FOURTH COMING!
The birth of the Princess Theatre came in 1926, but the theater was heavily damaged in 1932 by fire. In 1939 the theater was completely gutted by yet another fire! Ten months after that January fire, its second and most devastating fire, which caused an estimated 50,000 1939 dollars' worth of damage, the Princess Theater reopened the third time to grand local fanfare and Hollywood well wishes.
The once proud theatre closed in 1999 and fell into great ruin, but with the efforts of lots of people in Harriman and Roane County, Tennessee, the Princess has been restored to her "Art Deco" appearance!
She now stands ready for her fourth, and grandest debut! Her appearance will most likely come in March 2012. She will have a new purpose; to provide arts education to local students, and to once again entertain those that love her and support her in new and wonderful ways.
