Opened as a movie palace on May 10, 1926, the Loew’s State Theatre housed everything from first run films to vaudeville shows including names like Milton Berle and Eddie Cantor. By the late-1950’s it was known as Loew’s Theatre. It was closed in the late-1970’s and remained dark for 20 years.
The theatre underwent a $10 million renovation that reduced the overall size of the auditorium and its capacity from a tight 2,100 to a roomy 861 seats. The rest of the building was turned into a learning center.
In the early-2000’s, Tidewater Community College and local officials dedicated the old Loew’s Theatre in honor of its new home with the Norfolk, Virginia campus.
