SIKESTON -- Tuesday was the last picture show for Sikeston. On Wednesday city officials informed the Malco Trio Theater its building was no longer in compliance with city codes and must be closed.

City Manager Doug Friend said the closure came after efforts by the city to encourage the property owner and Malco officials to bring the building into compliance. The property, located at 1045 E. Malone Ave., is owned by Central Realty, a St. Louis based company, and rented by Malco Trio Theater.
