The Wehrenberg Chain opened the Studio in the Pine Lawn district of St. Louis in 1924 and the theatre seated 670. The Studio was located in a small shopping area in Pine Lawn with a skating rink and later the Thunderbird Drive-In was built across the street. The Studio survived until television took its toll on another popular neighborhood theatre. The Studio closed in 1956.

The building is now a medical clinic, but has since been demolished.

The theatre is now demolished…an empty lot now marks the footprint of the theatre.

Here is vintage (1950s?) photo of the Studio Theater.

That’s where it’s from. But I didn’t steal it. LOL

The Studio at 6235 Natural Bridge was the second theatre with that name. It opened on Christmas Day, 1937 and closed in July 1957.

The previous Studio was across the street at 6220 Natural Bridge and closed a few days before the new theatre opened. This theatre had a capacity of 460.
