Designed by architect Fuller Claflin. The Orpheum Theatre was opened August 27, 1906 and featured Keith Vaudeville until 1924. It then went over to movies and was renamed State Theatre. It was redesigned circa. 1925/1926 by Philadelphia theatre architect William H. Lee. The redone foyer was reported to be "fairly breathing the atmosphere of Spain." The State Theatre reopened October 11, 1926 with Rudolph Valentino in “The Son of the Sheik”.
The State Theatre was closed in the early-1950’s and was demolished in 1954.
