You would have to go and dig around in the various places in town.There might even be a book on old Buildings in Nashville at the local bookstore.I know Augusta has several regional books that shows a lot of the old city and that includes the long lost movie theatres here.Give Borders a try I know a city the size of Nashville has such a book. Take it easy.mike.

This theatre would have been located across the street from Sylvan Park.

I wonder if you mean Richland Park? Sylvan Part is a neighborhood roughly extending from 42nd to 51st on the south side of Charlotte.

I looked in here May 16th. The building is old, but isn’t right for being a theatre by shape or design unless it was just a big room with a temporary screen, folding chairs, and a projector on a tripod kinda like a road show set-up.
