Only information that I have found so far on this theater is that it was in operation between 1948 and 1950. The street address is no longer listed so I assume that the theatre has been demolished.

Listed as “The Centre” in the entertainment section of the November 26,1947 edition of the Nashville Good News Weekly. Both the Centre and the Nolensville Rd Woodbine were apparently part of a large complex then known as the Navy Separation Center on Thompson Road. I made a visit to this area on Tuesday. Both theaters have been demolished. A bank now resides where the Woodbine once stood and a Nissan dealership blankets the ground where the Centre was anchored.

There used to be a building on this property that housed a bar called the “Wagon Wheel”. I recall it as being an unusual building, and I do remember it had a stage and offered live music. It was a pretty rough-looking establishment…
