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 6:57 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.

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.

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.

TLSLOEWS commented about Crescent Theatre on Nov 6, 2009 at 11:49 am

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.

TLSLOEWS commented about Liberty Theatre on Nov 6, 2009 at 9:49 am

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..

TLSLOEWS commented about Loew's Paradise Theatre on Nov 5, 2009 at 8:08 pm

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.
