State Theater showing more silent films
SPRINGFIELD, OH —
From today’s Springfield News-Sun:
One of only two surviving downtown movie theaters, the State officially is vacant again.
The other theater, the Regent, is just now beginning the slow march toward renovation with a new roof after 15 years of sitting empty.
But the State — while it needs work, too — at least has had activity going on inside.
“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” with a new live score will be shown in late March, 2008. I’ve been given the go-ahead to try to start a new classic film series at the State Theater.
