Venue Information

Kiel Auditorium was an indoor arena that stood in St. Louis, Missouri from 1934-1991.

The arena, completed in 1934 at a cost of $6 million, seated 9,300. It was originally named the Municipal Auditorium, but was renamed in honor of former St. Louis Mayor Henry Kiel in 1943. A unique feature of the auditorium was that it was split into two; the back of the building was the Kiel Opera House. It was possible to use both sides at once as the stages were back to back.

The building was demolished in 1992, but not before hosting the Missouri Valley Conference mens basketball tournament the preceding year.

The Scottrade Center (originally named "Kiel Center", then "Savvis Center" before the current naming rights were purchased) now stands on the site of the former Kiel Auditorium. The Opera House portion of the building on the northern part of the property facing Market Street, was not torn down but has remained closed for fifteen years, as members of Civic Progress, Inc. who promised to pay for the renovation of the Opera House have reneged on that promise, while opposing all outside efforts to achieve that renovation independently of themselves.
