This comment by Ron Salters on the Capitol Theatre page says that the Capitol was to the right and the State to the left as one entered the theatre building. Street view shows that the Capitol’s auditorium is still standing and houses a CVS pharmacy, but the State’s auditorium has been demolished and its site is occupied by a strip mall and a parking lot.

A brief article about theater promoter Frank G. Hall in the April 22, 1922, issue of The Moving Picture World (scan at says that construction had begun on the State-Capitol twin theater project in Union City, New Jersey. Hall’s earlier project, the State Theatre at Jersey City, was then nearing completion.
