About The Martin
The Martin is a first run movie theater located on the campus of Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, Tenn. We are the only movie theater located in Giles County, and in our short history, we have grown to be a reliable source of entertainment for many people in our area.
In 2004, an alumnus of Martin Methodist called the president of our college with the idea to see a movie theater on the campus of his alma mater. The college, with help from members of the community, agreed to the challenge. There was a large gift from a major cinema chain along with gifts from and help from other groups and individuals. At that point, the dream was to become a reality. In the spring of 2005, Martin Hall Auditorium was renovated to become a multi-purpose movie theater and auditorium.
On April 23, 2005, The Martin opened to huge crowds for the animated feature, Robots, and the Jim Carrey movie, The Majestic. Although The Majestic was a few years old, its theme – the rebirth of a movie theater in a small town – made it a fitting film to show at the black-tie grand opening celebrating our theater’s birth in the small town of Pulaski.
The growth of The Martin has been exciting to see. How many colleges can boast a movie theater on campus? Not many. We are open for business 48-50 weekends a year – on Friday and Saturday nights, and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The Martin shares the facility with the Martin Players, the MMC drama department. For one or two weekends out of each semester, The Martin closes to allow the drama department time to perform its shows.
