Recent comments on the State Theatre page indicate that it was the Washington Theatre, not the State, that was renovated and renamed the Penn Theatre. The Washington reopened as the Penn in March, 1961, and closed in April, 1973. It was demolished shortly after closing.

It appears that the Washington Theater lasted until at least late April or early May 1959, as Walt Disney’s “The Shaggy Dog” moved over from the State to the Washington the final weekend of May 1-2, 1959.
