NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The 18-acre entertainment and work destination at the Nashville Yards will now feature a theater.

Plans include a 12-screen luxury dine-in cinema, eight lanes of bowling, gravity ropes and virtual reality experiences to name a few.

Developers said a key feature will be the private event spaces which have screening rooms that can be rented out to gamers and filmmakers. They're planning a scratch kitchen, bar, and music venue too.

EVO Entertainment Group CEO Mitch Roberts said, “To see it come to life in a big way is just really incredible."

Downtown resident Lauren Timm said it would be a good option for when people visit.

"My parents are coming to town, and I was trying to think of things to do other than, ya know, go to the bars on Broadway, and I like doing that too, but not every day of the week, so it would be nice to have other activities," Timm said.

Ideally, she'd love some affordable options too. "I’m not from Nashville, I’m from a small town, it would be cool to have some of those like low-key restaurants that aren’t going to cost me an arm and a leg to go to, I might go to them more often," Timm said.

As for Rachel Alfonso, she'd be interested in checking out the theater. "I definitely would be, I’m originally from Florida and we have a lot of those relatively close, I think the closest one here is a bit of a drive maybe 20 minutes away," Alfonso said.

She thinks it would be fun on a weeknight. "Usually I’m out with friends, but I think for a date night it’s nice to do something a little bit more chill and relax," Alfonso said.

When the entire Nashville Yards project is complete it'll be a walkable campus. They also purchased and renovated the Union Station Hotel.

"I think this development in general is going to be a huge change for downtown," Roberts said

Amazon's tower is officially open, and this specific project is expected to be finished in late 2024.
