The Crescent opened in the 20s, its exterior designed in something of a Colonial-style. It could seat 800 when it was a single-screen house.

During the early 80s, the Crescent was twinned by Kerasotes Theatres, which operated the theater at that time. In 2001, it became part of the GKC Theatres chan. It continues to run first-run features today.
