Bonnie Kate has quite the comeback story. The historic theater located in downtown Elizabethton on S. Sycamore Street opened as a movie theater in 1925. Throughout the years, the theater hosted talent shows, bond drives for the ear, and church services. Eventually, it closed its doors and fell into disrepair.
