Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

Acquired by Commonwealth in 1955, the Hall was, by the 1960s, an "art movie house" in the winters and closed in the summers. Developer Garry Lewis bought the Hall in 1987, and mused that he might turn it into a conference center. Instead, a guy rehab was performed and a St. Louis Bread Company restaurant moved in in the 1990s. Though the words "The Hall Theatre" are carved in stone on the classical facade, they've done a great job of removing any internal evidence of the building's past. The restaurant closed as Panera Bread in 2013 and the building is still vacant as of 2016.
