    Woolworth Theatre

    Woolworth is a registered historic site of downtown Nashville’s Fifth Avenue Historic District. As one of the original “five and dime” stores, it’s the site of the first lunch counter sit-ins during the1960s that features the original storefront and displays. Today the Woolworth is transformed into a theatre that aims to provide a unique, first-of-its-kind experience.
