The Majestic Theater(as originally named) may have been built on the site before 1919, but that’s the earliest provable date. It was Gainesville’s major playhouse until a fire destroyed the building in 1932.
The "Greater Majestic" was reconstructed later the same year, and it showed both movies and live proformances. Again it was gutted by fire, leaving only the exterior walls.
In 1938, as if a name change might bring better luck, they tried again with the "State" to show motion pictures. Its Art Deco style remains today. The facility is available to rent for all kinds of private and public functions. Full movie projection capability is planned in the near future as well as opportunities for organizations to present concerts, plays, festivals, ballet, and orchestra profomances. Current projects can be seen at the theater’s website.
