The Melrose Theatre opened July 1, 1942. Although it is almost identical to the Belle Meade Theatre, the Melrose Theatre never attained the respect and reverence bestowed upon its twin sibling. Hopefully, that might change soon. With the Belle Meade Theatre slated to become a grocery store and upscale developers eyeing the Melrose shopping centre, maybe some benevolent enterprise or theatre chain (say Landmark) could restore the theatre to the status the Belle Meade Theatre enjoyed during it’s heyday. It has been converted into a restaurant.
