Opened as the Lynn Theatre in 1921. This is one of the least known of the Loew’s State Theatre’s that once dotted America. To save space in Loew’s directory advertising, it was usually listed as just White Plains. More information about its history and the current status of the site is needed. During its operation, Loew’s State was considered one of the top theatres in Westchester County.

Early Film Daily Year Books also list an 1,100-seat Loew’s Strand for White Plains, but with no specific address given. Does anyone have information about Loew’s Strand? It either closed forever or was dropped by Loew’s and taken over by another company that changed its name and may have reduced the seating capacity as well.

Loew’s State was originally known as the Lynn Theatre, and was “the city’s leading amusement house,” according to The New York Times, which, on February 12th, 1924, reported that Marcus Loew had purchased it and would open it within three weeks with vaudeville and movies. Several weeks previously, the NYT stated, the theatre had been purchased at an auction sale for $285,000 by George Dunnellen, who might have been an agent for Loew.
