On August 4, 1949 the Blair Press published an article about the Century changing its name to the State as of September 1, 1949.

Here is an item in the Winona (MN) Republican-Herald dated 1/22/48:

Blair, Wis, â€"(Special)â€" In a deal completed last week the Century theater was sold to Frank Lesmeister, Martin, N.D., who purchased equipment, business and building from Ralph Andrews and George Johnson. The new owner, who has been in business for several years, will be assisted by his wife and son, who will come here as soon as living quarters are available.

Johnson and Andrews purchased the theater about a year and a half ago from La Vern Kostner, Arcadia. Andrews has been located here as manager for the past year. Johnson recently purchased a theater at Braham, Minn., and Mr. and Mrs. Andrews expect to go to Mission, Texas, to visit her parents and may eventually settle in that state.

I have no idea. This is the first time that I have heard of a State theater in Blair. Here is an ad for the Century Theater from 1936.
