Founded in 1965 by Cathy DeCaterina, Theatre Bristol is a community theatre serving all ages that also has the distinction as the oldest continually running children’s theatre in Northeast Tennessee. Located on historic State Street in Bristol, it also serves Southwest Virginia. Its Main Stage season consists of drama, comedy and musical productions that take place in the ARTspace, a multi-purpose, black box theatre which seats up to 120, and at the Paramount Center for the Arts. Theatre Bristol is a volunteer-operated community organization.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Paramount Center for the Arts is an art deco motion picture palace built in the late 1920s and early 30s with an opulent, richly embellished interior and house organ. The original Venetian-styled murals and the art deco ambience were faithfully recreated during a recent restoration. The auditorium welcomes more than 700, with street-level access and wheelchair locations, and a grand stage designed for full-scale theatrical productions.
