The Tivoli Foundation and the City of Chattanooga announced Friday morning that the Tivoli Theatre, The Walker Theatre and the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium, would close immediately "as a pro-active measure regarding the spread of COVID-19."
In a statement sent from the Tivoli Foundation, safety was given as the reason for the closings.
"The safety and security of our audiences, artists, and staff is our top priority, so with heavy hearts we will be cancelling or postponing our upcoming events from Friday, March 13 to Friday, April 3, or until the city is comfortable with our re-opening. We will notify our patrons if this hold is extended."
According to the release, the foundation is working to reschedule shows where possible. Refunds for events that will be ultimately canceled will take place at point-of-purchase. If the show is postponed, tickets will be honored for the new date.
