Hope it manages to come back again. A lot of the beautiful interior is still intact.
This theatre has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Status on this theater should be changed to renovating. Here is a link to an article in the ClarionLedger: http://www.clarionledger.com/article/20131230/NEWS01/312300011/McComb-crew-sets-sights-Palace-Theater?nclick_check=1
On December 24, 2013 the village of Calumet will host a Centennial Ceremony honoring those lost in the tragedy at the Italian Hall. Please see the theatre’s official website for more information.
You’re right, 699 was the original capacity for the Delaware Theatre.
It appears that the Madison will also host live entertainment when the renovations are complete.
“The space at the back of the building, part of the third phase, will be converted into an entertainment area.
The entertainment area will be used for comedy shows, concerts, lectures, and movies as well, according to Fishgold. However, there are some limitations as to what kinds of performances he will allow.”

Was this ever a Proctor’s Theatre? There is an ad on e-Bay for a postcard advertising Proctor’s Theatre, Port Chester.
This has the same address as the former State Theatre.
Before and after pictures from the 1959 renovation.
Here is a link to an article in Box Office magazine.
It does have a listing on CT, it is listed as Eastview Theatres in Rochester.
The Jericho has added an ice cream stand called Twist. It is accessible from inside the drive in or from outside.
That’s funny, the Box Office ad says the “1,400 seat Proctor’s Theatre" yet the theatre seats over 2,000 people. The illustration is definitely the right theatre.
The Lyric Theatre opened in the town of Faust in 1913 and was managed by A.A. Cluett. it was remodeled and reopened as the Adirondack Theatre on July 16, 1940. In 1941 the town of Faust was absorbed into the village of Tupper Lake. The Adirondack operated into the 1950’s and by 1959 was closed. Perhaps they are talking about the theatre in Faust.
Joe, the link you posted is to the Rittner blog.
I see that you are temporarily closed for installation of the digital equipment. Do you have a date for the reopening?
The Madison is closing after tomorrow’s afternoon shows. The theater has been sold and will be remodeled. The number of screens is being reduced from 7 to 2 and additional retail space will be reclaimed.
Congratulations Sally, that’s great news!

Best of luck to Sally. The State Theatre is lucky to have someone as dedicated as her to keep the theatre going. She did a beautiful job with the twinning of the cinema.
Thank you for that lovely set of pictures.
Any word on the current status of this project?
I would be surprised if this theater was actually demolished. It is the third floor of the mall and the mall is still standing. You can still access the third floor public restrooms and see the entrance to the lobby.
