State Theater 3

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Now one of the best theaters in Detroit for concerts, the former State Theatre (originally the Palms Theatre) still pays tribute to its glorious movie palace past by showing classic films during the summer. The theatre is located half a block from the Fox Theatre.

The State was taken over by Live Nation and in 2007 was re-named The Fillmore.

This is from Boxoffice magazine in November 1956:

DETROIT-Lobby remodeling that began last March at the Palms Theater here has been completed. Incorporating the adjoining store space, the new lobby has modern bronze and glass doors, a new confection counter in the center and a decorative scheme in scarlet, gold and black.

A new 200-ton cooling plant also has been installed-all work having been done while the 3,000-seat theater was in operation 18 hours daily.

You keep saying that! You are becoming a not-so-amusing troll.
The fact is that they were indeed excellent photos. But has ended all Boxoffice magazine online availabilty. They did it at the end of June. So naturally, and SADLY, none of those links work. So I hope this is the last time you comment “Nice photos.”

Gerald I was not commenting on the Boxoffice photos, I know that they have not worked in a while, I was commenting on the ones that do.I do not think boxoffice cut off the photos because of my 2 word comments.And by the way I was not trying to be amusing, just keeping it simple,have a great day.
