Hi again.

This theater was one of the earliest (third behind the World’s Dream Theater and Brighton Theater) theaters owned and maintained by Thomas and John James. According to the St. Louis Argus the theater was a community favorite for its cheap shows, diverse offerings and comfortable confines. I’ve uploaded a few clippings to illustrate.

Also, in April of 1916 the theater was expanded to include an airdome at 2126 Market—see Argus clipping.

This theatre was in operation at least as early as 1914 when a building permit was issued to “alter picture show.”

The address, 2351, puts it on the north side of Market Street…the MSD is on the south side.
