State Theater ... Atlanta Texas

The State Theater was opened around 1941 by Tri-State Theatres. Seating was provided for 728, in orchestra and balcony levels. It was a clean, attractive building with white and gold pressed tin and glazed red brick trim. There was the familiar marquee sheltering the entrance and ticket booth. “State” was spelled out in red and neon Aztec letters on both sides of the marquee.

IS it possible that the next door place was the Ritz Theatre? The front sure looks like it was once a Theatre.. Just a thought.. (Looking at the American Classic 1981 photo)
