There’s always something going on in Historic Franklin’s downtown core! Whether you are a film enthusiast or into cultivating your own craftiness, there are plenty of opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the arts the next few days:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 5, it’s “Girls’ Night Out” at the Franklin Theatre – rally the crew and enjoy a movie night in downtown Franklin. Magic Mike is a comedy based on actor Channing Tatum’s own life as a hopeful entrepreneur and ladies’ man who shines at night.

Themed drinks will be served. The show starts at 7 p.m., and movies are always just $5 at the Franklin Theatre. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit

  • Several months ago, a group of small business owners saw the extraordinary amount of local talent flowing from Williamson County and wanted a place to showcase it. This Friday, Sept. 7, those visionaries are celebrating the Franklin Art Scene’s one-year anniversary—an art crawl that gathers 1,000 patrons at 30-plus participating locations in Franklin’s downtown core the first Friday of each month.

This free monthly event is a unique experience for both the art novice and the connoisseur. Trolleys circulate among all the stops, and $5 buys an unlimited wristband to jump on and off at will from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
