Here is an item from the April 23, 1921, issue of The American Contractor which must be about the State Theatre:

“Theatre (M. P.) $60,000. 2 sty. 83 X 120. Brown & River sts., Rhinelander, Wis. Archt. Oppenhamer & Obel, Wausau. Owner Peter Rouman, Rhinelander. Brk. Archt. & owner taking bids to close April 30th.”
The cross street is Rives, not River, of course. William Oppenhamer and Irving A. Obel also designed the Grand Theatre in Wausau.

This postcard image (1920s?) shows a different marquee.

After my car had a massive electrical failure up in the north woods, I was towed to Rhinelander and had to wait a week for parts to arrive at the dealer. Each night, I went to the State and watched the most amazing movie: Blade Runner. I was alone and scared and running out of money – but that theater and that movie kept me sane.
