Yale Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Another one of the many neighborhood theaters in the densley populated South St. Louis. It was located around the block from the Melvin Theatre on Chippewa and three blocks east of the Melba Theatre on Grand and Miami. The Yale was opened in 1914. It was surrounded by homes and two and four family flats, so it more or less had its built in audience. The Yale was closed in 1946.

Until a few years ago, the building served as a church, but today sits vacant.

The function on this theater should be “Church”. There are photos of the former Yale/Church here:
