CULPEPER, VA — After being announced almost two years ago, the expansion plans for the State Theatre might finally come to fruition. Following that, it would become a mixed-use entertainment venue.

The State Theatre Foundation comes before the Town Architectural Review Board today for approval to begin the estimated $10 million rehab.
