Update July 4 2022: I visited Olivet today and the old State/Oak Theatre is now a church.
From Cinema Treasures
Opened as the State Theatre prior to 1937. It was still operating as a movie theatre in 1957. Strangely, the State Theatre doesn’t appear in listings in the Film Daily Yearbook until 1956 & 1957 when it’s address is given as 408 Cottage Street and no seating capacity. Purchased by Olivet College and converted into Oaks Theatre for live stage plays. Possibly sold by the college to a church circa 2014.
