I am wondering why this theatre is listed as an atmospheric with a ceiling of gold leaf and a central chandelier.It does not sound like a true atmospheric,however the theatre may have atmosphere.There are other theatres on the atmospheric list which probably should’t be there,which tends to make it confusing.I am researching and compiling a list of atmospherics and have found about 146 so far,which I suspect has only scratched the surface,as John Eberson probably designed that many himself.

The New Orleans Loew’s State was not a “twin” to the St. Louis house.

I have some great memories of this theatre, and I am happy that I was able to enjoy it before it was torn down. I was a patron there in the early 70’s, and I do remember it for the ethnic films such as “Super Fly” “Foxy Brown” and several other black films of which I cannot remember the names… It was truly a very beautiful place. Lastly, another thing I cannot forget is the “Pink Panther” cartoons that were always shown before the movie.
