ROYAL PALLADIUM THEATER TO CLOSE IN THREE DAYS
The Royal Palladium, the historic movie theater right here in St. Louis, is to close in three days for demolition. The final screening at the theater is tonight for Brady Armstrong's new movie, Vanishing Destiny.
Built in the 1920's, the theater was owned by J.J. Thompson, who planned the theater for magic shows. The most popular act was when Harry Houdini came to perform many times.
Opposition to this demolition is led by local activist Nick Falcone, founder of HAD IT. To contact this group, write to:
