Lawrenceburg’s art deco Crockett Theatre was built in 1950, complete with a custom-laid terrazzo lobby floor, and is one of the few theatres from this era still operating in the United States. It is listed on the National Historic Registry and has been lovingly refurbished by the Crockett Theatre Board.
Groups such as The Singing Carter Family with Mother MaybeIle and the Carter girls have graced its stage. Reel-to-reel features such as Gone with the Wind, Smokey and the Bandit, and Elvis movies have entertained full houses. Many a child growing up in Lawrenceburg fondly remembers being on stage at I he Theatre for dance recitals, band competitions, and other community events. Today, the stage is named to honor the work of Emmy Award-winning actor Michael Jeter, a native of Lawrenceburg, TN. It is actively used for performances and conferences.
