Labor Temple Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Labor Temple Theater opened in 1914. It was built by the local Miner Union 755 and had a seating capacity of 800, all on a single floor. There were offices and meeting rooms and lodge places located on the second floor.

The Temple Theater was closed in late-1972 with the Walt Disney movie “Napoleon and Samantha”.

It is now in use as a furniture store warehouse, minus its marquee.

I took a few photos of the Labor Temple on a trip through southern Illinois last year. Here’s one of them; others are nearby on my Flickr page!
