Comments

Grand Prix was the last Cinerama title to play at the Crescent. Cinerama was removed from the name of the theatre and the Cinerama equipment was removed when Lowes Inc started to lease the theatre at the end of 1967. The Cinerama equipment was sent to the Belle Meade theatre.

Current status

Closed 1982 and demolished 1994
