Here are 2 better photos of me and my parents at the Flea Market at the Revere Drive In Theater in 1972 and 1974.
Applies to next photo.
Though I believe the photo is from before 1946, because it is still a vaudeville house.
Two images added.

The image says the photo is from 1946, but I believe it’s earlier because it is still a vaudeville house.

Seattle bus 36, a 1937 Ford “Transit Bus” (a front-engined design), photographed in 1937. It is at a stop westbound on University Street between 5th and 4th avenues. The lefthand portion of the building in the immediate background still stands, as part of the 1924-opened Fairmont Olympic Hotel (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), but the righthand portion – which in actuality was a separate building, the Metropolitan Theatre, opened in 1911 – was removed after the theatre’s closure in 1954, and was replaced by an entrance courtyard for the hotel. The separate building in the lefthand background was demolished many years ago and the site is now occupied by a plaza in front of the IBM Building.

The only reference I have been able to find regarding “First Man Into Space” and New Mexico is that it was filmed there.
It was released in the U.S. February 27 1959.
The premiere photos are definitely at a different State Theatre, but it is best to leave them up until we can narrow down which State Theatre that they are from.
Which will take some time given how common the name is.
The Midway was built in 1916, and still needs to be changed in the Overview.
The link I posted in 2015 is still up, and it confirms that year and that they wanted to reopen by their 100th anniversary.
Here is the link again.
