The Gem Theatre was opened in the 1920’s. By 1933 it had been renamed Melba Theatre. In April 1932 it became the Legion Theatre. It seated 403. Located in a popular place for Meramec River float trippers. The theatre maintained a small town atmosphere and most of its business was done on the week ends. It mostly ran a double bill program.
The Legion Theatre wasn’t anything spectacular as far as design but was one of the only forms of entertainment in the small town. The theatre closed in 1966. The theatre building itself is still standing and operating as cafe.
