Crescent Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The new Kroger that replaced the one on the Crescent’s site has a nice arial view of the theater, which was replaced by Kroger and other stores in the early-1970’s. Now there’s a Dollar General, CVS, Office Depot etc.

I remember the Crescent well. Its facade was a Nashville landmark. Althugh I barely remember it, my parents took me there to see “Snow White.”

During high school days(60s)friends and I attended many movies there.

I passed the Crescent on way to summer job during summers of ‘70 & '71. I know it was demolished sometime in the 70s; I lived out of state from '71-'89.

The Crescent was a Nashville institution whose passing I’m sure was
mounred by many.

This and many other theatres in Tennessee and Alabama were built and operated by the Crescent Amusement Co. based in Nashville, Tenn.

A Nashville landmark! My parents took me here to see “Snow White” when I was very young. In later years high school friends and I attended a number of movies here during the summers.
