Situated in central Virginia, this longtime cinema has been converted into a performing arts center currently known as Crute Stage. Originally called the Eaco Theatre, it opened during the World War I era and was in the typical opera house style of the time.
In 1940, the owners hired Richmond architect A.O. Budina to modernize the theatre, which would be re-named the State Theatre.
According to a report in the 1941 Film Daily Year Book: "The front portion of the house was completely gutted and several rows of seats were removed. A new foyer, lobby, and parlor were provided, together with powder room and the latest in toilet facilities. The entire auditorium was re-decorated in the Regency style, which seems to a vogue at present. The result is a very homey type of small theatre, and considered by qualified observers as a most successful one."
