The Webster opened in 1931 as a small neighborhood house seating 696. It was an independent theatre. Located on the corner of Hadley and Webster across from the park and right next door to the Webster Elementary School. The theatre was loacted in a near north side neighborhood of Italian and Irish families.
Just a short distance from downtown St. Louis made it easy for the neighborhood to walk to the big palaces downtown or the attend their neighborhood Webster Theatre. The Webster was a mainstay of the neighborhood until the mid 1950’s when television came along, it started weekend only operations and later closed for good in 1956.
The theatre stood empty with the doors torn away and holes in the side walls for nearly three years and then was demolished in 1959.
