The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the State in Webster has an exterior photo dated May 1941. The theatre had a narrow entrance in a brick commercial building at least 3 stories high. There was a small marquee and a small verticle above. The Report states that the State Theatre has been playing MGM films for over 10 years; that it’s over 15 years old and in Good condition. It has 987 seats. The 1940 population of Webster was 13,100. The theatre, along with its nearby mate, the Liberty, were run by E.M. Loew in the early 1940s. The 1927 Film Daily Yearbook lists 3 movie theatres in Webster, 2 with over 900 seats, but none was named “State” or “Liberty”.
