The Granada Theatre opened on October 1, 1927. It was a neighborhood theater located in the Bevo area of St. Louis. The theater was designed in the Spanish Baroque style and featured a beautiful overhanging balcony.
It originally seated 1,585 combined on the main level and balcony. Much of its decor was considered too ornate for just a neighborhood theater.
It was a flagship theater for the Arthur Brothers/St. Louis Amusement Co. Chain. It mostly ran first run movies until the demise of the Arthur Theatre Chain.
Located in a densely populated neighborhood, locals were faithful to the theater until it closed. Part of the roof and back wall over the stage gave way over night during a storm and the cost of repairs was too high so the theater was razed in December 1992 despite efforts to save it.
