Opened in 1916 as the Martha Ellen Auditorium and named after the daughter of Colonel William Shelton. The Martha Ellen Auditorium 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 Theatre was converted into two screens showing first run attractions at reasonable prices, but had been closed by late-2014. The State Theatre has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1988 #88000944.
