This building is right down the street from where I live now. I always harbored secret dreams of restoring it to an art house theater. Although the marquee is gone now, the building has been beautifully restored on the outside (I can’t say what the inside looks like, as I’ve never been in pre/post renovation). The front of the building is nice, and the current owners built an entrance/porch onto the side of the building (facing the parking lot), where once would have been the emergency exit, I assume. I’m glad that this is one classic theater that got restored/repurposed & saved, rather than just being demolished. :)

Well, in my part of St. Louis it is pronounced as I noted above.

As to the spelling, it would seem the theatre marquee is the only
place it is spelled that way. The theatre is/was on Lemay Ferry Road; the area (non-incorporated) is spelled Lemay; and for the most part the theatre always appeared in theatre ads as Lemay.

Just so you know…it is pronounced LEE-may.

The twinning took place in November 1985, and was not a Moseley operation at the time.
