Should the primary name be New Crescent Theatre? A web search returns the spelling as Crescent.

In 1963, the Crescent Theater was operated by the Collier-Jackson chain, headquartered in Cleveland, MS. President was C.J. Collier and vice president was B.F. Jackson. Interestingly enough, Collier-Jackson ran the Booker T theater in Cleveland at the time. I was just commenting on a few Booker T theaters on another page.
