To clarify: Duggan & Huff the architects of the 1910 structure; Barnes the architect of the 1939 remodel.

Theatre was remodeled in 1939; architect of this was Bruce F. Barnes. Theatre had closed in May 1938; reopened in April 1939. With new seats the capacity was listed as 925.

The theatre building is not the building at the corner but the white building just up Union.

It’s an absolutely hideous remodel, but that is the old building. Note the roofline under that ugly cladding.

The outside now looks thoroughly modern – hard to say if iuts new construction or if they simply did extensive remodeling. There’s a modern addition on the side as well.

Correct opening date is October 29, 1910. F&M/SLAC had nothing to do with the theatre until the 1930s.

Building permit issued in September 1910. Architect the firm of Duggan & Huff.

Owned by Shulim Sigoloff, he leased the theatre to St. Louis Amusement around 1934.
