At one time there were 4 theaters on the same side of Church Street.The Crescent,The Tennessee,Loews Vendome, and the Paramont all in operation,also there was an adult house that I won,t name.
Patsy click on to my personal link tlsloews and look at my list of comment theaters you can click on LOEWS VENDOME and pull up its C.T. site that way if you cannot find it.
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.
Too bad no one can find any pictures although it had a really good name for a theater.
Thanks for the info.
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.
Good to see it is restored and back open.Hope to see it someday. Now if they would just do something to the LOEWS KINGS.
Another day in paradise, good to see all the Loews Wonder Theaters are still standing in one way or another.
Very cool, will have to drive up to see it soon.
Nice night time pictures,all the old theaters always looked better all lit up.
Great 1952 shot I wonder how many people when in the wrong theater by mistake?
This theater looks like a bat from the front.Different though design.
Still looks like a theater only whited out.
Good post KenRoe they just keep tearing them down and build another.
Any info please,cool name.
Good looking pics. Looks like every city had a PARAMOUNT the one in Nashville,Tennessee was torn down in 1977 and has been a 1 level parking lot ever since.It opened in 1930.
Very cool theater, glad its still there,some things were meant to last.
Great pictures on the page keep them coming.
Great picture from Warren Harris.Those were the days…
At least its still there none of the LOEWS WONDER THEATERS have been torn down yet.
This theater should be listed aka Loews Melrose. Loews ran this house for a long time.
Great comments Mike but I could not find any pictures. You must be like me I have many stories and memories of my theater days but I did not take any pictures that I can remember or find.I am checking out the other movie houses you have listed.
Great site and pictures.
