Theatres on Beale St.

Built in 1917, the Grand Theatre was one of four significant theatres in the Beale Street area. The Daisy Theatre still stands on the south side of Beale Street and the other three theatres faced it approximately on the north side of the same block. The smaller theatre was known as the Grand Theatre from 1917 to 1926, and again from 1931 to 1932.

This webpage has photos and old advertisements as well comments on the history of the Grand/Venus/Metropolitan. It is a bit confusing as to which theater was named what and when.

This image was used on the cover of an edition of Memphis Blues by W. C. Handy which commemorated the dedication of Handy Park on Beale in 1931.

I have revised the history of both of these theatres after doing some cross-researching and unraveling.
