Correct address is:

2001 Airline Dr
Metairie, LA 70001

Celebration Church currently occupies the property.

The Aug. 8, 1951 issue of The Exhibitor said that the Crescent “celebrated its first anniversary with square dancing in the patio.” So it must have opened in the summer of 1950.

The above information is incorrect.

Now Sam’s Club @ 3900 Airline Dr, Metairie, LA 70001.

Please update. The shopping center where the church is located existed while the theater was open per Historical Aerials.
