    Thanks to Jerry Alexander THS member in St. Louis who brings us up to speed on this story:
    I brought up the link. Interesting to see that the story in question dated from May of 2009.
    To bring things up to speed: owner filed for a demolition permit December 22, 2011. City granted same. Demolition began January 17, 2012. In other words, it’s a goner.
    Here’s the link to the initial demolition story: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/demolition-of-historic-avalon-theater-begins/article_fe6f8558-4185-11e1-936e-001a4bcf6878.html
