The State Theatre was reportedly opened in 1912. It was a long, narrow theater with a tall, brick stage house. For many years it was operated by T&D Theatres, but in the early 1950’s was run by Fox West Coast Theatres, who closed the house in August, 1954.
Various independent operators attempted to revive the State Theatre over the next couple of years, but it was finally converted into a night club. In 1999, extensive remodeling was done to convert it to its current use, a banquet and reception hall called the Merlot.
The web site for the Merlot Banquet Hall features several photos of the theater as it is now (from which all of the original decoration appears to have been removed), but no historic photos as yet.
