Built in 1893 as the DeGive Grand Opera House. It was taken over by Marcus Loew in 1918 and was remodeled to become Loew’s Grand Theatre. It was here that the ‘Gala World Premiere’ of "Gone With The Wind" was held in 1939.
The Loew’s Grand Theatre listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, and last used for storage, was damaged by fire in January 1978. It was demolished later in 1978.
The theater was memorialized by Davis Cone’s painting which can be viewed in Popcorn Palaces, available from Harry Abrams books.
