I worked there when it was a Loews house. It had a marquee on the front of the building of course but also had a 2-sided marquee in the front of the shopping center. The theatre was in the back of the center. I do not remember how may seats it had but it was the newest house that Loews had in Nashville at the time, they Also had the Loews Crescent downtown Nashviile, and the Loews Melrose on Frankin Road.
The new Princess became the Crescent about 1959 it was a cinerama house for a short while. After the Loews Vendome burned Loews got the lease on the Crescent making it the Loews Crescent,830 seats 415 a side.
I was the manager of this theatre when it was a Loews house I was transfered to there from my job at the Loews Crescent,Asst.Manager. Any pitctures of when it was a Loews house would be great. If fact My first real job was as a doorman at this house when i was 15.I also worked at the Loews Madsion at times, it is a church now.
I worked in this theater Loews Crescent in the late 70,s.We had the World Premier of W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings there, a Burt Renolds movie. It had lots of Nashville people in the movie and a shot of the theater is seen in the movie.It had 830 seats 415 on each side, it was a rather plain movie house but I had lots of fun there. I also worked at the Loews Melrose and Loews Madison.
