Nearly five inches of rain had fallen over the weekend and on the morning of May 8, 1961 the weight of the accumulated water atop the marquee weakened its supports and the 50-foot structure came to the ground. The theatre remained closed and was demolished early in 1962.

Architects the local firm of Kennerly & Stiegemeyer, who designed a large number of neighborhood theatres.

Theatre opened August 23, 1914.

Built by the Great Northern Amusement Company. In 1919 William Goldman added the theatre to his chain.

In 1920 theatre management became Famous Players-Missouri, an arm of Famous Players-Lasky (Paramount).

In 1921 theatre became part of City Wide Amusement (the Koplars),
and later that same year St. Louis Amusement Company was formed, a
merger, of sorts, between Koplar and the Skouras Bros.

St. Louis Amusement operated the theatre until its demise.
