Previous Names: Roseland-State Theatre
This theatre, which was opened in 1922, was officially simply the State Theatre, though it was also known as the Roseland-State Thetare (as it was located in the heart of the South Side Chicago neighborhood of Roseland.)
It sat at the corner of S. Michigan Avenue and E. 110th Street, in a two story, block-long building that also housed offices and stores.
It could seat 2,030, and was decorated with a highly ornate Neo-Classical terra-cotta facade, with an interior originally in elegant Renaissance style. It was remodeled in 1941 to the plans of architect Roy B. Blass.
The State Theatre’s days as a movie house ended in 1969, and afterward, it housed a church for many years until it was unfortunately demolished in 1997.
