The marquee in the picture is the second marquee that was installed in around the 1939. When this theatre opened it had two marquees , one on Broadway and one around the corner on 7th. Also it had a large neon display signage that ran outside the entire building.

This was the grandest of all the Loew’s theatres. The mezzanine level leading to the huge balcony was more ornate than the long narrow lobby.

I have a lobby flyer from one of Buster Keaton “Go West” It’s about a 6x5 folded flyer that has Buster on the front with more information on the inside. And on the back has in Red lettering (Rubber Stamped) Loew’s State Theatre Week Starting Saturday No 21st. My Grandmother grew up in the Los Angeles area in the 1920’s when she was just a little girl. My Great Grand Father was a big fan of the Picture Shows and this flyer was in her belongings.

Theatre opened in 1921. The State was designed by Weeks & Day, the same firm that designed the FOX in Oakland, CA. The State seats about 2380 people. The State showcased for many years the same shows that play The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
