Bobby Stone Film Series

The Tivoli Theatre opened as a movie picture palace in 1921, so it’s only fitting that nearly 100 years later the Tivoli Theatre Foundation is announcing an exciting new lineup of the Bobby Stone Film Series in the historic venue. The new lineup, embracing classic films as well as new releases, follows a few different themes that lie at the heart of both the Tivoli Theatre as well as the Chattanooga community.   

Our new summer lineup, embracing classic films as well as new releases, follows a few different themes that lie at the heart of both the Tivoli Theatre as well as the Chattanooga community. Everything from family-focused to celebrating the famous Chattanoogan Samuel L. Jackson, the Tivoli Theatre Foundation is proud to build on its recent successful relaunch of films on the largest screen of its type in North America and a brand new, fully digital surround sound system.

This film series launch follows the successful installation of a new state of the art digital sound and projection system valued at $350,000.  The new system includes a brand new 4k digital projector, immersive surround sound, and a 50-foot drop down screen, the largest of its kind in North America.  Made possible by a major gift from Bobby Stone’s family and friends, this new equipment brings film projection back to the ‘Jewel of the South,’ in a world-class way.  Keith Sanford, Board Chairman of the Tivoli Foundation, remarks, “the Tivoli Theater Foundation is proud of the recent turnaround it has seen since assuming control of the Theatre in 2015. The return of film programming into one of the country’s best venues will only build on that success.”

People are used to seeing great musical performances at the Tivoli Theatre. Therefore, we thought it only fitting this summer we bring some great music to the silver screen and make joyful noise through film. 


When it comes to blockbusters, it’s all about summertime. This lineup of movies are truly momentous events. Come take a break inside the former picture palace and the South’s first air-conditioned building. Beat the heat and check out these summer spectaculars.


What better way to spend an afternoon with the family than at a movie? A movie at the beautiful Tivoli Theatre of course! Whether you’re a kiddo or a just a kid at heart, these movies will surely take the whole family back and really come to life on North America‘s largest drop-down screen and incredible brand new digital cinema projection system.

What better way to bring our classic Chattanooga theatre to life than with a famous Chattanoogan? We think local hero Sam Jackson is the man, and these films highlight some of his most iconic roles throughout his massive career.


The Bobby Stone film series is named after Chattanooga filmmaker Bobby Stone. Bobby‘s vision of bringing back films to the Tivoli Theatre lives on both through the series and now through these selections which were some of Bobby‘s favorites, touching on various cinematic themes and issues important to him. This is a tradition we’re proud to carry-on.
