Elite Theatre

Over the years there were four Elite Theatre’s in Nashville. This Elite Theatre was operating prior to 1950 when it was operated by the Crescent Amusement Co.. It was demolished in the 1970’s and a McDonald’s restaurant now stands on the site.

More Nashville Nostalgia, by E. D. Thompson, says that the Crescent Amusement Company opened the Elite Theatre on Charlotte Pike in 1927. It also seems to imply that he building was converted into a bank in 1948, but the wording is ambiguous.

As this Elite Theatre was across the street from a park, I believe that it is the Streamline Modern house depicted in two photos on this weblog page. The Colonial Revival style church in the background of the second photo can be seen in modern Street View.

Toward the end of its life, the Elite was used for live theater productions. I have several friends who appeared there in a stage production of “1776” in the early 1970s.
