The Ashland Theatre opened in June 1915. It was all on one floor and was located in a densely populated area of North St. Louis.

It was a little fancy for a neighborhood house. It had a circular marquee wrapped around the theatre. The lobby was rather large for one of the smaller theatres.

The theatre closed on May 11, 1951 with James Ellison in “I Killed Geronimo” & David Bruce in “Timber Fury”. The building is now home to a church.

The current occupant is the Afrikan Village church. The building doesn’t much resemble a theater these days:

Church looks too modern to be built around 1915.
