The State Theatre opened in the early 40’s and was operated by Pioneer Theatres. Seating was listed at 279. The State closed in the mid 50’s. Could not find anything on the current status of the building.

Given its late 1936 reopening, the State might have been the theater that was mentioned in the September 12 issue of The Film Daily that year. The item said that Pioneer Theatres was remodeling the Royal Theatre at Carroll. There would be a new front, boxoffice and marquee, and the interior would be redecorated. The item said that the house would be renamed, but did not say what the new name would be.
