The Mercantile Exchange’s Newest Addition, MX Movies now open right on MetroLink alignment

MX Movies at the Mercantile Exchange development downtown at 7th Street and Washington Avenue had its grand opening this past week.  Located at 618 Washington Avenue, Suite 201, St. Louis, MO 63101, the luxury theater features three digital screens, in-theater dining service, love seats, and a lobby bar. MXseats What is even better, the theater is directly next door to the Convention Center MetroLink Station and on the Downtown Trolley line. Just one more great destination you can go by Metro.

MX Movies is one of several new businesses that have recently opened at the Mercantile Exchange. While Pi Pizzaria, which opened in May 2012, was one of the first to open, a number of new eateries have opened their doors in just the past few weeks. Takaya New Asian and Snarf’s Sandwiches, which neighbor Pi and MX Movies, opened just before the new year, along with Robust Wine Bar, which is across the street in the Laurel Building. The Collective, a co-op boutique, has been open since October and plans for a National Blues Museum are in the works for a 2014 opening. And this is all in addition to the larger tenants of the MX – The Laurel Apartments, the Embassy Suites Hotel, and the Macy’s renovation – that have anchored the $250 million development since the beginning.

MX Movies is downtown’s first movie theater in a decade, marking a significant milestone in the revitalization of downtown St. Louis – an effort that the Mercantile Exchange has helped to energize.


All of these new establishments sit right on top the Convention Center MetroLink Station and on the Downtown Trolley line.
