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.

Thanks for the up date C.T. The pictures links above are not the 1st. Crescent on 5th. ave. They are of the Crescent on 415 Church St.Known as the LOEWS CRESCENT at that time. I know this info is correct because I was the Asst. Manager at that time.Met my wife to be there also.

The info on this page is wrong this Crescent theater is long gone at 217 Fifth Ave.The Crescent at 415 church street was aka the Princess, Crescent and Loews Crescent, also Crescent Cineramia for a while. C.T. has a page calles Loews Crescent that has much better info.Needs to be updated.

Loews used to do the same thing. They would advertise the movie that they were playing and also put like see this movie such and such at the Loews whatever.They had large marquees back then so they had the room to cross ad.

In regards to an early post “A HARD DAYS NIGHT” played at the Paramont, but it also played at the LOEWS VENDOME I saw the records fro the Vendome that we stored at the Loews Crescent after the Vendome burned But the records did not burn in the fire.It sold a lot of tickets..

Unkystan If I am not wrong the Loews Paradise never had a marquee as such. Something to do with the city codes there, I read this on their site somewhere,maybe they still can,t.All the other LOEWS WONDERS had marquess and Verticals.

Patsy by the way the Tennessee and the Loews Crescent were 2 blocks from each other on the same side of Church street, The Tennessee was much larger inside and much nicer. Also the Loews Vendome was at 615 Church Street but it burned in 1967, And Loews took over the lease on the Crescent a little later.WE used to borrow ice from the Tennesee sometimes when we were real busy and they would buy change from us.All the managers new each other and helped each other even though they were our rivals.

Patsy same as all the other cities T.V. V.C.R.s suburb theaters.Not having to pay to park. A 31 story condo is built at the Loews Crescent site now next to the L&C tower Nashvilles first real skyscraper,also 31 stories. It was built in 1955. The Tennessees site is also a high rise condo.Also the Loews Crescent was by no means a movie palace,it had red drapes on the walls and over the screen,it did open and close though.I had a great time working there but that was 30 years or more ago.
