The Hall Theatre opened on August 28, 1916 as a mixed vaudeville house and movies. It was a family operation until the Commonwealth Theatre chain acquired it in 1955. By 1961 the Hall Theatre was classified as an “art movie” theatre, and was operated in the winter and closed in the summer.
The Hall Theatre was purchased by Garry Lewis in 1987 with the intention of turning it into a conference center. This never happened and it was rehabed in the early-1990’s and a St. Louis Bread Company (Restaurant) occupies the building today. There are no signs today that this building ever was a theatre except the name ‘Hall’ carved in the stone of the exterior of the building.
