The Lee Theater was located on Lee Avenue near North Newstead Avenue in St. Louis, Mo. I lived at 4868 Lee Avenue as a child and we attended it often. This was in the era of the late-1930’s & early-1940’s. Architecture: non-descript. It was a very small house and not a first run-house unless you count Republic Pictures.

The Lee Theater continued operating until at least 1950.
