The State was originally the Rialto and was demolished years ago. In the early to middle 50’s, after being closed for some time, it was reopened but failed and was dark until it was taken down. For a time, you could see part of the auditorium sidewall on the Commerce building next to it as they shared a common wall. That building is also gone.

This theater after it was closed was reopened as the State Tavern and operated for several years. It went out of business and was torn down after that.
