The Princess management is looking at showing a few classic movies sometime later this year, according to their Facebook page.

What an awesome job they did retoring the Princess! Saw many movies there in the 60s and 70s and would love to see it again. Most of the hot movies were shown at the Gateway Theatre during that time period, and the Princess showed a lot of family fare movies and more obscure new releases.

The Art Deco renovation was actually in 1940-41 and was done by the theatre’s then-owner, Crescent Amusement Co. of Nashville, Tenn. Crescent later opened Decatur’s first drive-in theatre, the Crescent Drive-In Theatre (naturally!). After a few years, the company tore down the drive-in and replaced it with the Crescent Motel. Crescent always built first-class facilities. The Princess went through a partial renovation and expansion in 2001. It is currently raising funds to pursue a complete renovation/restoration, trying to duplicate the splendors of the 1941 remodeling.
