Gaty Theater

The Home Theater was an airdome style movie house with dirt floors and benches located on Gaty Avenue at 17th Street. It was replaced by the modern indoor 500-seat Gaty Theater in 1940. In the early-1950’s, it was destroyed by a fire. A church has since been built on the former site of the theater.

The 1912 East St. Louis City Directory has a theater listing for a Home Circle Airdome, but it is at 940 Trendley Avenue.
