Architects: Oliver William Steigemeyer
The Laclede was built and opened in 1940 as an independent theatre. It was located in the Mill Creek section of the city just blocks from the Grand White Way where all the movie palaces were located. The theatre had an African-American audience.
The theatre was rather plain with nothing notable in design but it served the area for 34 years until the Mill Creek Redevelopment completely leveled the area for what was supposed to be now and modern housing. It became offices instead and St. Louis University now occupies more than half of the area.
No trace of the Laclede to be found at all. The Laclede closed in 1959.
