Local Business Spotlight: Full Moon Cineplex
We usually spotlight our favorite local businesses—places that we love and go back to frequently. We haven’t actually been to this month’s local business, but we’ve been dying to check it out and wanted to go ahead and share it with you since this is the perfect time of year to visit!
Courtyard Cinemas on Lebanon Pike in Hermitage was the first place I watched Hocus Pocus and many of my other childhood favorites in the early 90’s. I still have fond memories of going to the theater with both my daycare at the time (Dodson Chapel UMC) and with my grandmother, who always let me visit the concession stand (making her my obvious favorite).
The theater that once anchored the Jackson’s Courtyard shopping center closed and sat empty for 13 years until new owners Ben and Stacey Dixon moved into the space and opened Full Moon Cineplex, a theater focused on classic and mainstream horror films for customers, like themselves, who can’t get enough of them. I don’t think I’ll be able to talk my grandmother into going with me any more, but my 8 and 13 year old sons can’t wait!
The Dixons offer mom-and-pop service, serving and refilling food and drinks themselves. General admission tickets are just $7 for a movie or $22 for movie and dinner, which also includes endless popcorn and soft drinks. A selection of beer is also available. Dinner customers are asked to order their tickets before 2pm on the day of the movie so they know how many to prepare for. The theater offers both traditional movie theater seating as well as dining tables and chairs.

Nashville’s Longest-Running Haunted Attraction
Nashville’s longest-running haunted attraction, Slaughterhouse, is also now owned by the Dixons and shares the building with the theater and we can’t think of a better pairing for the upcoming season than a horror flick and haunted house! Slaughterhouse will open for the 2019 season on Friday, September 20th from 8-11pm and run through the end of October (hours may vary throughout the season so check before you go).
