St. Louis' Missouri Theatre was designed by the firm of DeRosa & Pereira for Famous Players-Missouri (a subsidiary of Famous Players-Lasky).

Theatre opened November 8, 1920. Seating capacity was approximately 3600.

Theatre was last used in December, 1957.

Theatre was demolished in summer, 1959.

Office building was not “built in its place”, but was built in 1922 fronting Grand Avenue. Theatre auditorium was behind the office building. 1959 demolition was of auditorium only.

Theatre was later operated by the Skouras Bros., RKO, and Fanchon & Marco which evolved into Arthur Enterprises.
