The Lions Head opened on April 18, 1980 as a three screen cinema under the Consolidated Theatres banner. Carmike took over operations in 1989 and added two screens. The Lionds Head was operated by Carmike until it closed in 1998. It was later torn down and replaced by a new retail structure.

The Lions Head has apparently been demolished and replaced by Office Max. Drove by the plaza today and not a smidgen could be found of this venue. By chance does anyone have a photo(s)of this theatre?

The entrance to the Lion’s Head was in the corner of the strip mall, where Caesar’s is now. View link
None of the original architecture remains to the best of my knowledge. The seats weren’t very comfortable but the staff was laid back and it was fairly easy to sneak into R-rated movies (I was a young teenager at the time of Lion’s Head.)

The first guy was correct. The theater was located where Office Max is now. Caesar’s used to be next door to it, but moved to where they are now in the corner of the strip mall. I worked there in the early 90’s, but quit in 1993 after being attacked and shot in front of the theater box office late one night. The staff at Caesar’s saved my life. I was a really cool theater with movies you couldn’t find anywhere else in Nashville. But, I’m glad it’s gone now.

Consolidated actually added the two screens, not Carmike. They actually divided all three original houses up to make the five, and closed for a period of time to do this. This was always a high-grossing theatre, as there wasn’t hardly any competition nearby at all, just the Belle Meade.
