I found a photo of the Criterion Theater on a Poplar Bluff, Missouri history site. The caption under the photo reads:
“The Criterion Theater was an early Pine Bluff movie house. It sat on the west side of W. Main Street at the corner of W. Pine Street. In the late-1940’s, cowboy movie star Tex Ritter made a personal appearance at the Criterion Theater. Eventually the building became the Grabers department store. Today, the building is gone, and the area is a parking lot”.
The Criterion Theater was opened in 1911. In 1914 it was damaged by fire and was taken over by Rodgers Theatres who made repairs and reopened it. It was closed on August 22, 1957 and was converted into a department store.
