The Tennessee Theatre was opened on February 28, 1952 by the Crescent Amusement Co. The theatre was constructed inside an unfinished shell of a store & office building which was built in 1932, but due to Depression & war had not been fitted out. The Tennessee Theatre had a screening room, fully rigged stage and spacious lobby. Interior decorations were carried out by the Rambusch Decorating Co. There was a single large balcony with 278-seats and edge-lit signs saying ‘Smoking Loge’.
Located on Church Street in the 11 story, Art Deco style Warner Building, the theatre sign was nine stories high. Both the theatre and Warner Building were razed in the late-1980’s to make way for a new highrise. It was Nashville’s last grand old theatre.
