State Theatre, 2009

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1916 as the Ellen Martha Auditorium and named after the daughter of Colonel William Shelton. The Ellen Martha presented live performances and vaudeville. The theatre was later renamed the State Theatre and switched to motion pictures. The main floor has been updated with new seating but the balcony is pretty much the original, (the stairs, balcony rails, and seats). The State now has two screens showing first run attractions at reasonable prices. The State has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1988 #88000944.
