The Grove Theater

The Grove Theater in Oak Ridge holds a rich history of memories for many in the East Tennessee area. Constructed during the Manhattan Project & recently rennovated, the theater is home to numerous Arts & Sciences organizations. It is currently owned and operated by High Places Community Church.

the grove theater: Double your impact

Since renovating the large auditorium in 2008, the Grove Theater has hosted 100's of performances, fundraisers, and special events. To date, the theater has received over 200,000 attendees for these events and raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities, veterans, and for individuals facing serious illnesses. We have also served as the "base of operations" for numerous Arts groups, served as a launch pad for several local organizations, hosted parent athletic meetings, city information forums, and have been the meeting place for lectures on science and education. 

In 2018, the impact of this space continues and due to a very special donation, we are excited to begin new matching campaign called, "Grove Impact Giving." Starting January 1st, donations to the Grove Theater will be matched and improvements to everything from our building's exterior, to energy efficient light and sound equipment, to new energy saving heat and cooling units will be added. These improvements will keep the theater free and functional to all for decades to come.
