"Last Friday’s St. Louis Business Journal reports that movies will soon return to downtown St. Louis more than eight years after Union Station 10 Cinema shut down in 2003. A $3 million movie theater — to open sometime 'next year' — will grace the ground level of the parking garage formerly known as St. Louis Centre. The article states: 'The new theater will have three screens, and moviegoers will be able to order gourmet food prepared by local chefs, beer and wine from touch pads at each seat.' It will also be taxpayer-funded, and therein lies the problem." (04/08/11)
