Originally opened in 1975 as the Towne II, although a second screen was never added. By 1977 Muhammed Ali’s name was added as a later investor. The building still stands on the corner of Fifth and Beale Streets.
I remember walking down Beale Street in 1976 or 1977, before Beale Street was "renovated", and though the street was otherwise almost deserted, there were two open movie theaters, the Muhammad Ali Theatre, and the New Daisy Theatre. The old Daisy Theatre was closed at the time. The Muhammad Ali Theatre was by far the newest building on Beale Street at the time.
It has been a nightclub for many years with an unfortunate reputation.
