The Piedmont Theatre opened on December 23, 1912 with vaudville and photo-plays. The exotic name change to Alhambra Theatre came on September 18, 1922. Following a renovation it reopened as the State Theatre on September 21, 1931 with Edmund Lowe in “S.S. Transatlantic”. It was operated by North Carolina Theaters, a subsidiary of Publix. It was closed in 1937. The owners then took the State Theatre name around the corner to an existing 645-seat theatre (former Strand/Criterion/Capitol) around the corner on E. Trade Street.
Today the 60 story Bank of America corporate headquarters stands on the site of the State Theatre.
