The American Theatre was built in 1917, and opened on May 21, 1920. It was managed by G.C. Moore and featured vaudeville acts and silent film. The projection box was located at the front underside of the balcony. The American Theatre screened its first ‘talkie’ “Lord Byron of Broadway” on March 21, 1930. It was renamed State Theatre in 1934, and H.W. Knutson became the manager.
The building had been closed for many years, when it was severely damaged by a fire in around 1997. It was victim to a huge fire, which began at the top front of the building on the mid-afternoon of August 15, 2012. Only the walls of the building now survive.
