Google Maps will fetch the address for the theater that Chuck gave, but only if you write the street name as Lewis and Clark. Apparently an ampersand confuses their software.

In the street view from Lewis and Clark Boulevard, the theater building is hidden by a long row of shops. You get a pretty good view of the theater across a parking lot from 2568 Chambers Road, if you use the zoom feature. It’s a rather plain and boxy Midcentury Modern structure, but it looks to be in pretty good shape, at least on the outside.

Isn’t this theatre located in Moline Acres (rather than Saint Louis)?

Checked the google aerial photos for 9977 Lewis & Clark Blvd, but I get an address for the main intersection (divided highways) of Lewis & Clark and Cambers. – no sign of any old buildings in the area. Is it possible the area was redeveloped recently?

Theatre reopened in February 1982 as a dollar house under independent management. A short career, however, with theatre closing that September.

Arthur/SLAC opened the theatre in June 1965 and operated until its financial difficulties in the Fall of 1977. Mid-America picked up the theatre and operated from July 1978 until the theatre’s closing in August 1980.
