State Theater at night.

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The State Theater was opened September 19, 1925. Another theater photo that I found on the Blair County GenWeb site is the State Theater in Altoona, PA. The movie on the marquee, “Kiss Me Kate”, was released in 1953 so the photo should be from the early-1950’s.

A Marr & Colton organ was installed in this theatre in 1925.

What a nice b/w photo of this theatre that had a Marr & Colton organ in 1925. What is the current status of this theatre other than just being ‘closed’?

During an urban renewal project, the State theater was
demolished in 1972.
