Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

This cinema was called the Tiger in the mid-1950s, the Princess Palm Art in the early 1960s, and the University Theatre and Book Store in the early 1970s. Since it was by now pretty much your run-of-the-mill smut shack, it's not hard to imagine that the University of Missouri pressured the theatre into choosing a different name. Curiously, it became the Olde Un. It moved to 101 E. Walnut in 1986, and the old venue was demolished.
