My first real job as a doorman in 1973.$1.50 an hour,when it was the Loews Melrose.Ended up being the Manager in 1979.
This theatre was built by Crescent Amusement Company,which built many Nashville Theatres and others.
The Bowling Alley at the right side of the complex has been torn down.The rest of the building still stands.
The theatre still looks like this today,except it has been painted.
This photo was taken when Scene Three owned the complex.
This theatre was A.K.A. Loews Richmond.
Mike used to have Loews student discount cards,they got 50 cents off the adult price.
Played 1st.run Loews Crescent,Nashville,Tennessee.I also have the one sheet.
Jack Coursey has posted 2 photos of this theatre on Cinema Treasures,but they are posted on the wrong Crescent Theatre page.
The photo posted on this page is the wrong Crescent.The theatre in the photo was at 415 Church Street.
The Allens store across the street from the theatre is STILL THERE!
How would you like to change that marquee?Nice Job!
Thanks for posting this Nashville Theatre Jack.
Now thats vintage.
What a great postcard.
Notice the Gay Waybar Grill next door.
Very Nice Marquee Job.
This photo was taken in 1959.
Just noticed that there are elevators in the lobby.The Theatre did not have them.The Bookstore must have put them in.The elevators are were the restroom used to be.
Nice vintage shot,looks like the 40’s.
Great photo David,The Loews State can be seen in the background also.
Loews State can be seen in the background of this photo.Loews Palace was around the corner at 81 Union Ave.
Elvis worked as an usher at the Loews State in Memphis,but was fired for being late too much.
What a sad photo.
