There is a listing for a State Theatre appearing in local newspapers as early as the 1920’s. The 803 Monroe Street address appears in the 1940 through 1950 Polk city directories. By 1950 the State Theatre was operated by the Crescent Amusement Co. It was still open in 1957.

The State was situated north of the Farmer’s Market, now north of the BiCentennial Mall, at the corner of 8th Ave., N., and Monroe St. in what is today considered the Germantown section of north Nashville. The theatre may have been attached to other retail stores, but from the 1960s and forward, it was unto itself. There was a nice marquee with the word STATE on the front.

In the theatre’s later years, it became a Jasper Transmission repair store.
