Built and opened in February 1923, the Aubert Theatre was designed by architect Paul Klingensmith. It was equipped with a Robert Morton organ. It was the scene of a horrible yet mundane tragedy a decade later, when a stagehand cut his little finger while changing a sign and subsequently died of blood poisoning some ten days later.
Noted St. Louis architect Leo F. Abrams remodeled the theatre in March of 1946, after which it reopened with 1,000 new upholstered seats and air conditioning, falling under the St. Louis Amusement/Arthur Theatre banner. Just a few years later the Arthur chain sold the theatre to the National Food Stores chain. The last day of operation for the Aubert Theatre was March 6, 1953 screening Clark Gable in “Across the Wide Missouri” & Janet Leigh in “Fearless Fagan”.
A retail store now occupies the building.
