The Crescent opened on Wednesday February 4th, 1914 at 9.30am, and for the next 5 hours the people of Austin were allowed to wander round and explore the new theatre, including projecting rooms etc, free of charge. Up to 3,000 people took advantage of the opportunity before the first film showing at 2.30pm. The manager, W.T.MacCormack was on hand with his staff to explain the workings of the machinery to the curious and afterwards said “The affair was a success in every way”.
