Just read on Historic Nashville that the Princess reopened as the Crescent Cinerama on Christmas Day 1959 with a new 45 foot screen.

Have you thought of getting on the Nashville Newspaper Archieve just to look at the old ads.I spent two days doing it,Had I had a printer I would have run out of paper,I enjoy writing lists of the Features and putting them on CT.

I have heard so many Theatre stories like this be it “THE EXORCIST” or “JAWS” but never witnessed it.

We had a midnight showing of the movie “Carrie” first time it was shown in Nashville,of course no one had seen the movie.We had about 400 folks for this screening.At the end of the movie when Amy Irving is putting the flowers on the grave and the arm comes out of the grave about 20 people ran out of the theatre nearly tearing the doors off the hinges and ran out into Church Street.Good this it was about 1:30 A.M. and no traffic.I had never seen such a reaction to a film like that.We ran this show for about 7 weeks.

Still it is a pity Nashville of all places with the Music World someone didn’t think to save one theatre,Guess Aususta is lucky we have Three,Four if you count the ART/Cinema One on lower Broad St.Glad Nick got YOUR great pictures on.

You are right Mike this theatre was also the last Downtown house razed, it was a single level parking lot for many years till the Condo’s were built on the site.The city gets a lot of tax money on a high rise,lots more than a theatre or other building.Thats just the way of the world.Also parking lots make a lot of money for the investment till they sell the land to a developer.

So Nashville,like Charlotte decided it was more important to tear down these classic buildings for parking or office space,what a shame.
