The National Park Service (NPS) has announced the temporary closure of Gateway Arch National Park, which includes the Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse, beginning Wednesday, March 18 until further notice due to the evolving COVID-19 health situation. The health and safety of visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is the park’s number one priority. NPS is working with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor this rapidly changing situation. When appropriate, Gateway Arch National Park will notify the public when it resumes full operations via traditional media, as well as online at nps.gov/jeff and gatewayarch.com and on social media (@GatewayArchNPS).

Project Background & Overview
About the Project Space
The 4800 square foot space is currently used as a 235-seat theater showing the documentary movie, Monument to the Dream. While the current use of the space is theatrical, options for this project are not limited to that use. In fact, the only limitations are the four walls and ceiling – everything else is up for and open to re-thinking, re-design, re-purposing for an entirely new experience.
