This was one of several theaters located in the northwestern part of St. Louis. It was run by Henry Holloway and opened October 6, 1937.
In the 1960’s, Mid America Theatres took over the theatre. It was remodeled and turned into an art house in February of 1964 and renamed the Fine Arts Theater on October 6, 1967. During the day time it would run family movies and the evenings would show X-rated movies. The movies became more hard-core towards the end. In 1984, a small chain, called People Theatre, operated the theater until 1986.
The theater still stands and has been converted into a Chinese restaurant and banquet hall.
