The January 4, 1941 issue of Showmen’s Trade Review reported that demolition of the Grand Theatre in Memphis had begun, making way for a new theater to be built at 332 Beale Street. That project was the house that would be known as the New Daisy Theatre.

I have revised the history of both of these theatres after doing some cross-researching and unraveling.

This image was used on the cover of an edition of Memphis Blues by W. C. Handy which commemorated the dedication of Handy Park on Beale in 1931.

This webpage has photos and old advertisements as well comments on the history of the Grand/Venus/Metropolitan. It is a bit confusing as to which theater was named what and when.
