Melba Theatre

Opened in the late-1940’s, the Melba Theatre is located on the Main Street in De Soto serving a community of about 6,000. At one time the theatre was operated by Wehrenberg Theatres of St. Louis.

After the Melba Theatre in St. Louis was closed, the marquee was moved to the Melba Theatre in De Soto, it has since been replaced with a smaller marque with Melba spelled out on each side. The exterior of the theatre is impressive with its brick artwork. The theatre is privately owned and typically clean showing first run attractions. In spring of 2013, it was hoping to raise money to convert to digital projection equipment.

Why would you put brown brick and aluminum siding on the lower half of a yellow brick art deco building?
