The new picture of the Armo is courtesy of der251, whose aunt took the photo. I scanned it and uploaded it to the website. Thanks to der251 for preserving this piece of history.
I just found this site, after telling my kids about going to the Armo, I searched on Google, and here it is! I lived in the 4100 block of Utah, and went to the Armo frequently in the 50’s. I loved the fact it changed movies every 3 or 4 days, so we went a lot. I remember seeing “The Thing” and it scared me to death, and I had to walk home in the dark!
I would love to see the picture of the Armo, so I will email der251 and offer to scan the picture.
Do you remember the outdoor theater next to the Princess on Gravois and Pestalozzi?
