The Pershing Theatre was originally called the Park Theatre due to the fact that the Park Opera Company operated it. It was built in about 1913 at a cost of $100-$150,000.00. The building was of reinforced concrete and towards the end it was called unsafe by the city of St. Louis and tore down.
When the opera company disbanded the name was changed to the Pershing and movies became the mainstay. In 1919 a Kilgen 3/13 pipe organ was installed. In 1921 the Kilgen ledger show the organ was moved to the Arsenal Theatre and was installed in it. The ledger only shows three manuals so the organ may have been reduced in size to fit the Arsenal.
