A small neighborhood theatre seating 492. It was built by the Fanchon & Marco circuit which later became St. Louis Amusement/Arthur Theatres. Single floor theatre that was rather plain and simple but served the patrons of the neightborhood.

Appeared in the City Directory from 1911 to 1916.

The years of operation long predate the circuits mentioned in the introduction.

Am I the only one who has noticed the frequency in which JAlex corrects St. Louis area theater information posted by Chuck?

I’ve noticed it too, but I’ve noticed how often Chuck’s descriptions could use a little clarification. I think they’re probably both right, in a way: Many of these theaters were probably independently run before Fanchon (not Franchon) & Marco came into the picture. The City Directories can be trusted, to a point: Sometimes a theater would exist for a couple years or more before making it into the Directory, and sometimes the Directory would continue to list it for a few years after it had gone out of business.
