One Year Anniversary Of Downtown’s MX Movies

January 17, 2014 Downtown, Featured, Popular Culture 6 Comments

One year ago today downtown once again had a movie theater with the grand opening of MX Movies. Previously downtown had a 10-screen theater behind Union Station, under I-64/Hwy 40, but it closed years ago. MX Movies is in a much better location.

The marque is a nice addition to Washington Ave.

Unfortunately MX Movies had to close on January 7th due to broken sprinkler pipes. Wednesday they tweeted "Celebrate! If repairs go to plan, we hope to re-open Friday, which happens to be our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! #STL "

MX Movies has three theaters of varying sizes. Congrats to MX Movies on their first year in business!

    do you think they are making any money?

     
    • Not sure, I know it is part of the group that runs other theaters like the Chase & Galleria.

        Not quite, STL cinemas is a consultant to MX movies but they do not directly own them.

         
        • I’ve not seen their contract, so I don’t know the terms. It isn’t unusual for developers to lose money for a while to get activity going. i have no clue how they’re doing compared to their projections.

          Correct….STL cinemas has backed away from MX. People can draw their own conclusions.

            The last show my wife and I was was the Hobbit and the theater was full in the afternoon. I’m sure that the theater will do just fine as the area continues to grow.

“At the end of the day, there’s no legislation, there’s no list of demands, there’s no report that’s going to give the police an understanding that they have to stop killing us. We can change the courts, we can change these different things, but we need to change the culture of the police department and stop hiring certain officers. We can talk about training all day, but training doesn’t fix how you look at me as a man or a human being. No matter if you look at a report or you don’t, if you pass legislation or you don’t, if we have a list of demands or not, one thing we will get them to understand is that they will stop killing us no matter what that looks like.”
