The State Theatre opened March 16, 1939 to serve the West End of Endicott, home of the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Factory. The theatre was built with Art Deco fluorishes in the auditorium, and a deco facade.
From October 18, 1963 the theatre was named the Cinema Endicott and presented more upscale film product. Loews was the last operator of this building. It closed in 1993 when Loews opened the Town Square 9 in Vestal, NY. The theatre sat empty for about two years, then was demolished for a drug store.
There was a sign on the side of the building that said “THEATRE OF DISTINCTION” but for the last 5 or 6 years of its life the “F” in “OF” fell off, so it was the “THEATRE O DISTINCTION”.
