Here is part of a September 1932 article from the Rhinelander Daily News:

Transfer of the operation of Rhinelander’s two theaters â€"the State and the Majesticâ€"to new management was announced today. The new operators are the M&M Enterprises, Inc. The new operating company consists of several prominent Wisconsin motion picture exhibitors, chief of whom are S.W. Miller, formerly of Milwaukee, and Fred H. Meyer, president of the Motion Picture Theater Owners of Wisconsin. Mr. Miller will manage the Rhinelandler theaters and is now making his home here.

The State theater was closed today and will remain closed until Saturday, when it will open for the matinee and two evening shows with the picture, “Once in a Lifetime,” starring Jack Oakie. For the midnight show the new management will present Norma Shearer in the world premiere showing of the picture, “Smilin' Through.“ The latter picture was an outstanding success in the silent version and has been acclaimed by critics as being even better in the talkie version.

The Majestic theater is being operated as usual. While Mr. Miller said today that he had not definitely decided upon the plan, he is contemplating operating the Majestic Saturdays and Sundays only, temporarily, after this week-end.
