This is a circa 1941 photo. Let me know if there are problems with the link.

If this is simply closed, perhaps there is still hope for this theatre?

Thanks Chuck. Next time I’ll just post the whole page. I isolate certain photos to save people time but sometimes it doesn’t work.

LM: The link you posted with all of the Raleigh theatres shows a State Theatre. Is that listed on CT?
