I am a professional theatre/production technician for over 25 years specializing in lighting. I worked in the State Theatre last in 1993 when it was a three screen movie house. I have been all through the facility. I have been in love with this theatre since I moved into the Yuba Sutter area in 1989 with the USAF. Just after it closed I tried to save this historic theatre and had the full support of the Marysville City Council and other organizations. Unfortunately it failed because of a sour business deal from an out of the area production company. I personally know tons about this building including the items that have been stated in the previous comments by other members. As a Very Active theatre/production technician I know for a fact that there are organizations, dance studios, theatre companies, concert associations, symphonies etc that are looking for a large venue to perform in. There is NO other “Real” theatres in the Yuba Sutter Community. Trust me, I have worked in just about all the venues in the area. I have seen projects like this work in other communities. As a long time Tech I want to work in a “Real” theatre in my own community. We need to take back, restore and open this theatre for the Arts and the Community. I will help & support a serious person or group who wants to bring back the National/State Theater back to life. This is The Theatre that Should be saved!
