The April, 1913, issue of a regional magazine called The Northern Crown contains an advertisement for the Mystic Theatre. No address is given, but assuming it was the same house as the current Mystic Theatre, it has gone back to what was probably its original name.

There is a brief shot of the State Theater in the background, in a scene in “American Graffiti”. I believe it is when Milner pulls up to save Toad during a beating by the car thieves who stole the `58 Impala. Also when Milner returns to his own car.

Very nostalgic at finding this link. I was the projectionist at the then State Theatre from sometime in 1968 until January 1970. Alan Finlay was the owner.

This theatre was also called the State, at one point. It was the Plaza when I photographed the exterior in 1984. My photo shows it playing a double feature of “Kagemusha,” and “Throne of Blood.” A year or two later, it had been renamed Palace. By the late 1990s, it had been renamed McNear’s Mystic.
