TLSLOEWS commented about Indiana Theatre on Nov 10, 2009 at 10:57 am

You comments are so right Indiana Theater, most people do not have a clue to the costs and labor involved in cleaning and maintenance of a large space as a theater.They think that the owner is getting rich off the box office and concessions.They do not know that most theater owners are in it for the love of it and not the money. Good luck to you hope you can keep thinks going.

You can take the Loews name off the theater, but most people will call it that anyway.The Sears Tower is still called Sears although they have nothing to do with it anymore.

Mike I also met my wife to be in 1979 at the Loews Crescent,she came to work there at the concession manager.She worked for Ogden food services who ran our stands.We had some employees that worked for Ogden and Loews so some got two checks a week.Or in those days Loews hourly employees got paid in cash although we would take out taxes and S.S.We would pay them out of Friday night receipts.I got a check every two weeks as I was on a salary.

Church street Center was built on this site it was going to be the next big thing it was a bust.It only lasted about 20 years and was torn down. Our main Nashville Library is there now, it faces up Capitol Blvd. looking at the State Capitol Building. Just like the Loews Vendome did.

TLSLOEWS commented about Loews Park Central on Nov 6, 2009 at 4:57 pm

Also in Mike post about the Melba I do not believe that there were any multiplexs in 1926.They may have twinned these houses but the Loews Park was a brand new quad in 1977.

TLSLOEWS commented about Loews Park Central on Nov 6, 2009 at 4:54 pm

I had the chance to move to Texas and manage the theater when it was going to open but I turned them down. I stayed in Nashville and Managed the Loews Crescent, Loews Madison, and Loews Melrose at different times of course. I always thought that If I would have gone I would have been Division Manager by know. Loews was great at moving people up in rank, I started working for them at the Loews Melrose as a doorman when I was 15,Red Coat, black pants and bow tie and all the popcorn you could eat. Great times….

Thanks for the info Ron. I know who Marcus Loews was I worked for Loews Theaters in Nashville ,Tennessee from 1973 to 1980. I was just wondering if they were related somehow. I knew Marcus died in 1927.Check out C.T.s site of the Loews Crescent Loews Madsion and Loews Melrose if you have not seen them.I work at all of them ay some time.
