Save The Crescent

Hello Everyone, This is Max Morey from the Crescent Theater. As I said in my video, I am slightly reluctant, almost hesitant, and certainly embarrassed by having to ask the community for more money to keep the Crescent Theater open. I shouldn't be embarrassed though. Single screen theaters are an important and essential part of every growing urban city, even by today's standards. Single screen theaters are making a strong comeback as city after city across our great nation realize their importance. Movie theater's bring residential, retail, commercial, and new restaurant growth into every city that supports a downtown movie theater. That's a proven fact and Mobile Alabama is way ahead of that trend. We have an 8 year jump on every other city on the Gulf Coast. The patrons of the Crescent Theater in Mobile Alabama have shouted from the top of their lungs, we love this theater and we want to keep it open. We want to continue to watch our city grow and prosper. With a small donation from everyone we can make this happen. Thank you and good luck. Your friend, Max Morey

The Lovers is a refreshing, funny look at love, fidelity, and family, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as a long-married and completely dispassionate husband and wife. Both are in the midst of serious affairs and are increasingly committed to their new partners. But on the brink of officially calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly and unexpectedly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance that forces them to navigate the hilarious complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers. A mixture of humor and powerful emotion, the story is a uniquely honest take on modern marriage.

The Crescent Theater was opened with intent to serve adult patrons. The films we chose usually have a PG-13 rating or higher. We have always tried to follow the MPAA guidelines. We also serve beer and wine. We do not allow cell phone use in the theater after the film has started and we do not allow late entry. Our doors are open every day one hour before each film and due to our popularity we encourage our patrons to arrive early to get a good seat.
