Joe Voglas post is uncorrect, the Melrose and Belle Meade were sister theatres not twins.The were very simular in size and design but also had their differencs.The whole shopping centers were very much alike when first built,Check out the Belle Meade site and you will see what I mean.
Nice to see that they still have their vertical sign.
Also Clifford single screen and “Downtown” Theatres have been long gone.There are not many “Downtown” movie houses anywhere,anymore,unless you are in New York. I never knew of a Multi-plex in a “Downtown” anywhere.Or an “Uptown” either.
Clifford If you do not know about Marcus Loew. Look him up, he said that we do not sell tickets to movies we sell tickets to Theatres.He is my hero!
Mike I did not know that you were a drive-in man now.
Was looking at the aerial photos, I never thought about how much a drive in looked like a baseball park.
Whats up Mike did you work at this drive-in too?
With the aerials pictures you can see the whole place in one pic.
Mike were you an usher there too?Just kidding.Where are the pictures?
Hey Mike how are you getting all this information, do you work for C.T. now?
Would love to see some photos of when this was a LOEWS house as it was built.Any body got some?
Oh by the way its good to see that this house is still up and running,even if it is shoe box houses as I call them.
Thanks Clifford it is too bad they chopped up these Movie Houses but it was the only way they could make money.I worked for Loews in Nashville,Tennessee way back in the seventies. We only had single screens then, and after the multi-plexs opened we could not keep up no matter what movie we were showing.Big Theatres are a thing of the past I am afraid.
Me to buddy, look forward to seeing them.Will be good to see shots of all the old places instead of pictures of the theatres as what they are now, if they have not been torn down altogether.
Come on Mike get it together!!!!
OK Mike when? I’ll be looking for them
1960 Picture looks much cooler than the 1980s.No Vertical and cheap looking sign.
Cool site nice pictures.
Great site with lots of good pictures,the most that I have seen on any C.T. site.
Funny stuff, Mike was about 5 then.
This was the 2nd Ben Hur the first one was a silent film, also shown at many Loews Theatres.
Nice old picture of the Imperial. Which one is Mike Rodgers? Ha Ha.Thanks Lost Memory.
The old show-biz saying,Will it play in Peoria.
Was the movie house near the airport???
What no pictures? 1281 cars @ $2.00 a car,if they where full,that was a lot of money back then.
