The Film Daily Yearbook, 1941 doesn’t show a seating capacity but in the 1943 edition it is listed as having 900 seats. Both edition list the Ace Theatre as a Negro theatre for black audiences.

In the F.D.Y. 1950 it is still listed as a Negro theatre at the 1123 Charlotte Ave address given above, but seating is given as 431.

This theater is apparently demolished. The satellite photo of this address shows that it is a parking lot (the whole block is, actually) for the work trucks of the Nashville Electric Service. This is almost immediately behind the NES main building.

You are right Joel.

This building was behind NES and sat unused for many years after it was closed. The sides of the building were overgrown with vines and weeds.
