The State in Larned

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The State Theatre originally opened in the late-1940’s and is the only theater in this small town of 4,200 residents.

After being closed for two years, the old cinema reopened in early July 2002 with a theater full of volunteers running the show. The theater was recently renovated and its famous neon marquee is still being repaired with plans to reinstall it in the near future.

A 1999 view of the State Theater in Larned. From the prior postings it looks like they did a very good job on the restoration work.

The Boller Brothers architectural records list Robert O. Boller as the architect of the State Theater which was owned by D.E. Burnett and H.L. Reed.

And updating the architect wouldn’t hurt either. :)
