Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Arsenal Theatre was located at the southwest corner of South Grand Boulevard and Arsenal in St. Louis. There was no street address given in the phone book of that era. There was a Kilgen theatre pipe organ installed in the Arsenal that according to the Kilgen ledger was previosly the same organ that was in the Pershing Theatre in St. Louis. It was opus 3149 and was a 3m/13r instrument. It is unclear if the organ was first in the Pershing then the Arsenal or vice versa. Wherabouts are unknown.

Earliest newspaper ad that I’ve found was in November, 1909.

I believe your presumption about it being on the southwest corner is correct. I found a Grand-Arsenal Theatre listed in a 1911 City Directory as being at 3101 S. Grand Blvd.
