#44: Tivoli Movie Theatre

If you're in your 20s, 30s or older the chances of you seeing a movie or a film festival here are 50/50. That's pretty much the greatest use of this legendary theater in St. Louis.

  • The Tivoli opened on May 10, 1924. 
  • It is four stories tall, and has a street frontage of 180 feet.
  • Consists of three screens
  • For nearly 70 years, it shown several films during their prime, until its decline and its eventual closure in 1994
  • Several movie posters from Hollywood's 'Golden Age' are placed on the walls inside the Tivoli, as well as a statue of St. Louisan Vincent Price
  • A year after it closed, Joe Edwards started the renovation process in 1995. 
  • In addition to being the place to view independent and foreign movies, the Tivoli also has hosted numerous film festivals.
