The State Theatre in Farmington is listed in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac as being part of the Lockwood and Gordon circuit of Boston. Note the “I-O-O-F” logo at the top of the facade in the streetview photo. This building was an Odd Fellows Hall, so the Broadway/State was almost certainly created from the Odd Fellows auditorium.
