Here is a larger version of the same photo of the Webbo Theatre that is linked twice in earlier comments. The movie advertised on the banner under the marquee, Western Mail starring Tom Keene was released in 1942.
Another Crescent Amusment Co. Theatre.
I grew up in Harriman and went to many movies at this theatre.. The correct name IS Webbo. The only remaining theatre out of four that were once in downtown Harriman is the Princess, which is currently in the process of being renovated and put to use as a community venue.
Here is the link to both text and photo.
The text that goes with the photo link in the above comment, claims that the name of this theater is Webbs Theater located on Roane Street. Webbo sounds like a name for one of the Marx brothers. :)
From the Tennessee State Library and Archives (the original photograph, I’m sure, looks much better):
