I know Mike today was the first I heard of it, as you noticed these are mostly Nashville theatres I am 52 years old did not even know of these theatres before today,they were before my time,I did a location search to find them, I do not know why I did not do this before many of these address' are near me and it will be easy to check them out,most are long gone I am sure.I only live 5 minutes from downtown Nashville.

I think that 314 address is wrong. I think the Star was at 412, being between 4th and 5th or right around the corner from the Bijou.

There was a tiny Excell next door at 416 and then a few doors up the Lincoln at 424 and then the very small Majestic at 426. All for African-American audiences and all short-lived.
