Opened in 1929 as the Alhambra Theatre. It was designed by Frank Thomson Jr. son of noted Dundee architect Frank Thomson. The proscenium width is 28ft.; the stage 30ft. deep, and there are six dressing-rooms.

Renamed State Cinema in 1940, it was taken over by the J.B. Milne chain in 1959, who closed it in July 1965 after a 2-weeks run of Greta Garbo classic films. J.B. Milne sold it to the City Council in 1968. On 29th November 1969 it re-opened as a civic theatre, renamed Whitehall Theatre, it has become the playhouse of the city.

The State didn’t close until 1968. I saw a couple of films there that year and was in the building just after closure.
