Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The Elite was probably vaudeville house at the turn of the century which also reeled silent films. No record has been found to date regarding the theatre after 1911.

The May 13, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World said that the Crescent Amusement Company had been operating the Elite Theatre at Clarksville for several years. The company was planning to replace the theater with a new building, which was being designed by architects Marr & Holman. The new theater, to be located at Third and Franklin Streets, and seating about 1000, was to be completed within four months.

I’ve been unable to discover whether the new theater was built or not. If it was, it might have opened under a different name. In any case, the Elite Theatre was still in operation at least as late as May, 1916.
