From the Stoughton Patch: After a veto from Gov. Charlie Baker, funds for the State Theater have been restored.

State Senator Bryan Joyce recently announced that the state legislature has overridden the governor’s veto, restoring $50,000 in restoration funds for the State Theater. The building has stood in Stoughton Center for 86 years and opened in 1927 as a venue for movies and travelling vaudeville-style performers.

The funds will go to updates and repairs needed to restore the building.
