The auditorium was designed to imitate a Spanish courtyard and it had stars and floating clouds on the ceiling,so besides being Spanish Colonial it is also an atmospheric.There is a photo of the interior in the book,Lone Star Picture Shows.

I have now discovered that the cinema closed on 10 Oct 1981 and was demolished in 1986,so the status should now be closed/demolished.

atmos commented about Loew's State Theatre on Nov 19, 2004 at 2:59 am

I am wondering why this theatre is listed as an atmospheric with a ceiling of gold leaf and a central chandelier.It does not sound like a true atmospheric,however the theatre may have atmosphere.There are other theatres on the atmospheric list which probably should’t be there,which tends to make it confusing.I am researching and compiling a list of atmospherics and have found about 146 so far,which I suspect has only scratched the surface,as John Eberson probably designed that many himself.
