|Home: BigScreen Journal - St. Louis, MO: Upscale Movie Theater Coming to Downtown in April 2012|
An upscale movie theater will be opening in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, in April 2012, according to an article published today in the St. Louis Dispatch:
The operators of the luxury Moolah Theatre in midtown have finalized plans to open a three-screen cinema in the downtown Mercantile Exchange building. The projected opening date is April 2012.
Locally owned St. Louis Cinemas has reached a deal with Connecticut-based Spinnaker Real Estate, which is redeveloping the 11-story building at Sixth Street and Washington Avenue. The Mercantile Exchange, built in 1919, was most recently the Dillard's Department Store anchor of the defunct St. Louis Centre Mall. Spinnaker's $150 million development would also include a hotel, housing, retail and a blues museum.
The movie theater will be on the second floor of the building, with a view facing west on Washington Avenue. Harman Moseley, who operates the St. Louis Cinemas chain that also includes the Chase Park Plaza, Galleria and Granite City theaters, says the new venue will up the ante on his bet that luxury amenities can lure adult moviegoers out of their homes.

St. Louis Cinemas currently operates four movie theaters in the St. Louis area: Chase Park Plaza Cinemas, Galleria 6 Cinemas, and Moolah Theatre & Lounge in St. Louis, and the Granite City Cinema across the river in Granite City, Illinois.
