This theatre on Gay street opened in 1907 as the Edison Theatorium and renamed the Marvel in 1908,and the Ole Bull in 1909. It became the Grand in 1910 and lasted until 1917. The building was razed in 1965 for a parking lot.

The Grand Theater at 216 S. Central was an theater for African American audiences that was open from 1945 to 1950. The address is on the east side of Central, between Vine and Commerce. It was located in close proximity to the Gem Theater on Vine.

Too bad that this Grand theatre is now a parking lot, but at least they have the Tennessee.
