From the 1940s a view of the State Theatre in Bradenton.

Open at least till 1950?

Photo says Manatee Avenue, but Google Map shows no such street in Bradenton?

Sure could use an address, more info and more photos!

Manatee Ave is the main E-W drag through Bradenton. Also called Hwy 64. Use the map link above, but take out the ZIP Code.

Judging from that 1940 picture, the theater would’ve been at the southeast corner of Manatee at 14th Street, with an address of about 1335 W. Manatee. It’s hard to believe, but virtually everything in the picture has been demolished, except for the church on the left and the tall building in the back right.
