At the site now. Though the marquee is newly gone (revealing a hodgepodge facade beneath), there’s a movie advertised for tonight, a young man is chalking up upcoming attractions, and there’s an announcement for a “1st anniversary” show in September. This one is definitely still open.

Film prints will be available longer than that. They should attempt to get community support for fund raising. If the owners need a manager I’m available.

Recently read an article republished on TwinCities.com that talks about fundraising efforts to purchase a digital projector for the State Theater. Apparently a non profit was formed to save the theater and has been showing films, unfortunately the digital transition is coming faster than they hoped. Looks like they were told celluloid prints would no longer be available after March or April 2013. I wish them the best of luck.

Chuck: Where are you finding that? What I have found says it closed in December 2011.

I work at this theater, and I was wondering if anyone could help me. We are trying to make a slideshow about the theater and I was wondering if anyone had an old picture of the theater? I looked at the 1977 one a few weeks ago, and just now I tried to open it and I cant. So if anyone has a link or something please comment back ASAP.
