Nashville, IL's State Theater

Not to be confused with an earlier State Theatre, this State Theater was built and opened on September 29, 1949. The small single-screen State Theater still shows movies. It is located on W. Elm Street near Kaskaskia Street and while it has a very plain fa├žade, its somewhat Art Moderne-style marquee adds a bit of color to the otherwise bland theater building.

Came across a history of the State Theater. It’s a bit confusing since apparently the name was used by two different theaters in different eras. http://genealogytrails.com/ill/washington/statetheater.html

The October 8, 1949 issue of Showmen’s Trade Review said that the new State Theatre in Nashville, Illinois had opened on September 29.
