The State Theatre opened May 5, 1928 with Perry Marmont in “San Francisco Nights”. In 1949, the theatre was operated by Joseph L. Lawrence and David K. Edwards, who also operated the Uptown Theatre and Rialto Theatre, and built the Villa Theatre.
In 1958, the license of the State Theatre was suspended for 60 days because of a “complaint or charge as made by Chief of Police W. Cleon Skousen”. On January 29, 1965 it was renamed Esquire Theatre. On April 11, 1976 it was renamed Studio Theatre. It has been demolished and a large hotel was recently built on the property.
