This movie theatre opened in downtown Charlotte in 1918 and had several different names over the years. It started life as the Strand Theatre and became the Criterion Theatre in 1931 and then the State Theatre in 1937. It was mostly a second run house and movies often shared the bill with vaudeville acts. One programming highlight was the local premier and extended run of the first Oscar winning film “Wings” in 1928 when the theater was know briefly as the Capitol Theatre.
In the 1940’s, the State Theatre was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary H.F. Kincey. Movies continued playing until around 1952.
