Opened in 1922, this theater became part of the St. Louis Amusement Co. chain in 1926. It was later operated by the Arthur Enterprises Inc. It was a single-screen theater on one floor. It has long been either a second run theater and then later an art house.
When the Arthur Enterprises Inc. went out of business the James Family bought the theatre playing art movies and it was booked by Landmark Theatres like the Tivoli Theatre and the Plaza Frontenac Cinema. The Hi-Pointe Theatre was used as a location for filming the 2005 comedy movie “Diary of a Co-Worker” starring Mort Burke.
Landmark Theatres closed the Hi-Pointe Theater in April 2008. It was taken over by independent operators and reopened in June 2008 screening a mix of first run and independent films. In May 2015 a second screen seating 50 was added.
