The State Theatre opened in 1934. I believe that it was operated by Paramount Theatres Inc. prior to 1950. It became a victim of urban renewal in the late-1960’s, early-1970’s, but I don’t know its actual closing date. In its, and the whole block’s place stands a partially occupied shopping plaza.

The State Theatre opened on October 7, 1934. It had a capacity of 700. The lobby was on the ground floor, the auditorium was upstairs.

For some reason, every article about an opening theatre mentions its fire exits.

Admission in the early Fifties was 55 cents for Adults and 16 cents for children.
