The theatre’s 1940 modernization was architected by Earle G. Stillwell.

It closed in 1978 under ABC Southeastern Theatres.

Another theater existed in Burlington that was owned by the Qualls family. The State Theater, located on Andrews Street, opened in 1939. A short article in the Burlington Times News is attached, along with a link.

I bet at one time it might have been an ABC THEATRE or Plitt Theatre?

I have seen two shows at this Venue. It has been lovingly restored and it is a very impressive job done on it. I liked it so well that my partner and I are presenting concerts there. Its just such a wonderful little place.
