I added the Dirty Old Boston photo of the State II box sign across from the then Essex 1&2.
If anyone creates a page for the State II or determines an address, I will post it there as well.
Ron Salters 2005 mention of the State II at the bottom of his comment.

I went into the Trans Lux for the first time circa 1960, before the change of name to State. There was a black and white movie of girl volley ball players who played the game nude. The house was in good condition. The dressing rooms for the Park Th. were in a seperate building across the alley to the rear of the stage and there was an overhead bridge connecting. I have a very vague memory of seeing this when looking up the alley circa late-1940s. After that, it was gone. The actor James C. Powers played at the Park in 1880 in a show called “Dreams” with Willie Edouin. In his autobiography, published around 1943, Jimmy Powers tells of life at the Park in those days. He and Willie Edouin apparently had a relationship similar to Homer and Bart Simpson. Movies pretty much took over the Park after 1912 or so, until Minsky Burlesque came in during the 1930s. The original Park Th. had 2 balconies, an orchestra circle, and boxes.There was a tunnel from a small hotel to the south which led to the backstage. This hotel was demolished after a gas explosion there in the early 1960s. The State II was located in a storefront on Washington St. and was not carved out of the State itself. The State closed in 1985.
I will see what more I can find out before creating a page for it.
So State II is the one with the box sign next to the State, and has no CT page as of yet.
Woops, not sure now.
Please clarify where those photos should go.
I will re-post the pics that show the Cinema X Twin Theatre signage on it’s page.
I checked the State, but it actually the place on the corner next to the State.
The same box sign is visible here.
Can’t determine which theatre is showing “Deep Throat” & “Devil In Miss Jones” across from the Essex in the photo however. It’s not the Pru because the sign doesn’t match from the same era.

If you were to Google just “Cinema Treasures DeMille”, the Embassy 1,2,3 Theatre would be at the top of the list.
Which states in the first sentence without even clicking on it that the name had been changed to the DeMille in the early `60’s.
Second would be a photo that was titled DeMille Theatre, on the Embassy page.
There is a certain amount of deductive reasoning that has to be applied, because CT only lists the AKA names once on the page of a given theatre.
If they refined their search engine to include all the previous names of all the theatres that that applied to, it would possibly lead to double postings of the same theatres if they couldn’t be found.
Rather than preventing it.
Since most come up automatically in Google searches in most cases.
The only thing I wish CT would do, is make it so e-mail notifications go out when comments are added under photos, and when new photos are added themselves.
For both open and closed theatres I usually use Google first, typing Cinema Treasures, Theatre name (if i know it) and the city.
It usually pulls up the Photos page of most of the theatres as well, so I can do a quick check to see if what I am about to post is already there.
I only search within CT, if I am having trouble locating obscure or missing theatres, that may have been listed under other names.
