After the Loews Vendome burned in 1967, Loews took over the lease of the Crescent down the street. We still had the weekly reports from the Vendome stored there as they were not distroyed in the fire.
In an earlier post it was mentioned that there was not a theater know as LOEWS. There was the LOEWS VENDOME was known to most locals as just The Loews. It faced up Capitol Bvld. looking directly at the Nashville, Tennessee Capitol building.I also used to have some seats from the Paramount that me and a friend took out as they were tearing down the building.We worked for Loews at the LOEWS CRESCENT down church street. I do not know what happen to them though.
This building was the Donelson Theater. It is an office building now.The bowing alley is still going I think.
Adding to the above comment the Melrose and Bellemeade were built in the early 40,s the Inglewood about 10 years later.
The Inglewood Theater was the only house in Nashville that had a “Cry” room for babys. It was not a sister theater to the Melrose or Bellmeade they looked very different.IT mave have been build by Crescent Amusement Company though any info out there.
Not many single screens left. This house looks well kept and was once owned by Henry Fondas wife how cool.
Thanks Ken, very interesting site. At least in London when they tear down an old theater they built a new one at the same site.Can not say that for the good old U.S.of A.
Nice 1938 photo! Need more info.
Hard to believe there no photos of this theater if it opened in 1981.
What a Folly about the Folly!
Address Numbers can change the old address you have tried may not even be good anymore. There are a lot of posts on this site and we still do not know were this movie house was.
Larry might not interest you,but it does to some people.Have a great day.
Cool picture of the LOEWS ELSMERE. Never heard of it until today.
Nice picture I love LOEWS old signs.Too bad that they don,t make them like that anymore!!!!
Great picture of Kelly Furniture with LOEWS SPOONER vertical sign still on it.
Great pictures of the LOEWS CENTURY.
ken mc’s picture is sad but a great find,only picture I have seen of the LOEWS LINCOLN.

How big is the box office and how many ushers do they have?
When they twinned it did they cut it in half 500 seats a side.And does anybody have any pictures?
I think its great another old Loews is is still there and being used today. Why do we keep tearing down all the cool stuff and building condos, Thats right I know $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Love this site I am an old theater man myself. Worked for LOEWS many years but love all the old and new movie houses.This site keeps me out of the bars and off the street,just kidding.Great work keep it coming!
Maybe they should call it the Grand Gopher.
Gopher what a name, nice looking movie house though.
Oh the good old days the stories I could tell you about my days with the “LOEWS” gang in Nashville, it would be rated at least a “R”.Our theaters also ways smelled funny and I do not mean popcorn.
