Open ~1941-~1969? Can anyone verify the exact dates?
Owned 1950-1969 Video Independent Theatres, Inc., of Oklahoma City, K.C. Blackledge, President, they had over 120 theaters in New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Need an address or crossroads, more info and photos.
The State Theatre was closed for a time in the early 1950s. As reported in Boxoffice of March 20, 1954, the State was reopened as a first run house by Video Independent Theatres following the destruction by fire of the circuit’s Delta Theatre on March 14.
I haven’t found the State mentioned in any later Boxoffice items, so I don’t know how long its reprieve lasted. I’ve found no evidence that the Delta was ever rebuilt, either.
