The State Cinema was opened in the early 1940’s. It was independently operated and was closed in the mid-1970’s.
The building stood empty for several years and fell into disrepair. By 1991 it had re-opened and had been converted into a 3-screen cinema.
The State Cinema was being operated by the Ward Anderson group of Empire Cinemas and it was closed on 30th July 1998, the day before their new 7-screen, IMC Cinema opened in the town.
In 1999, proposals to convert the State Cinema into an arts centre to be known as the ‘Altered State’ were never carried out and in the Autumn of 2002, the building suffered a fire. It was demolished in late-2006.
