Originally opened in 1975 as the Towne II, although a second screen was never added. Later renamed Muhammad Ali Theatre. I’m not sure of the exact location, but think it was 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, 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.
I don’t know how much involvement Muhammad Ali had in the theater other than the use of his name. It has been a nightclub for many years.
