The Playhouse in Centralia was listed as a new theater in the “Theater Changes” column of the March 2, 1933, issue of The Film Daily.

This vintage photo gives a glimpse of the State’s marquee on the left. This is the 100 block of East Broadway, and I believe the most likely address of the State is 117. The building just east of it at 119 is now occupied by The Entourage Salon. The building at (probably) 117 doesn’t have the number on it, or any signage, and it’s impossible to tell what might be in it, assuming it isn’t vacant. It has a very plain, modernized front, and might or not be the same building the State was in.
