An old vaudeville house on lower State Street, the former Mission Theatre was built in the 1930’s and had 1,000 seats. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.
In the late-1980’s, it was gutted and converted into a fourplex (built within), with a new marquee. The old stage house was walled off and and the dressing rooms converted into retail space. There is a small history display on your right, when going to the cinemas, before you go upstairs to the restrooms.
“I remember spending rainy summer days there with the summer camp watching animated movies.”
