One of four theatres that lined Broadway at one time in downtown Cape Girardeau. The Broadway Theatre was one of the more elegant that lined Broadway Avenue with the double towers on each side of the front with a large vertical sign. Elaborate plasterwork adorned the lobby and the auditorium. Detail work around the proscenium with dark red velvet drapes over the stage.
Another of the small town movie palaces of a by-gone era. The Broadway Theatre opened in 1921 and closed in 1960. It was taken over by Kerasotes Theatre in 1970 and after a remodel and refurbishment it reopened in October 1970. It was still operating in 1984, and after closing became a church. By the early-2020’s it had been mainly gutted internally and was in use for storage.
