The cinema complex is located in what once was the Chase Club…probably the best nightclub in St. Louis.
The theaters at Chase Park Plaza Cinemas consist of five intimate auditoriums with luxury seating, all-digital sound systems and “state of the art” projection.
This unparalleled design and composition effectively sets a new standard for the St. Louis cinematic experience.
Renowned architect Salim Rangwala, in conjunction with innovative cinema operator Harman Moseley, worked together with nationally recognized artist Dick Godwin to transform the former Chase Club into five modern day atmospheric theaters.
With a stadium seating “presentation theatre” and trompe I'eoil masterpiece in each auditorium, the Chase Park Plaza Cinemas are high tech representations of the Hollywood studios' great screening rooms of the past. This unique cinema concept is now offered for the first time to the discerning movie going public at the extraordinary redevelopment of a St. Louis landmark, the one and only Chase Park Plaza.
This is a very nice theatre. The arrangement is a bit odd; the box office is right inside the Lindell entrance, but the concessions and auditoria are located farther inside the building, down some hallways and through another interior lobby. If you don’t know where you’re going and don’t see the (smallish) signs, you may get lost between the box office and your seat.
I saw ‘Drive’ there last Saturday evening (9/17) and it was a wonderful experience. And the organist did in fact play before the screening (for which he received applause). Too cool. An enjoyable venue.
