General Information:

This Atmospheric style movie palace is now the home of performing arts and live concerts. The State Theatre was opened by the Butterfield Theatres chain on July 14, 1927.

It was renovated in 1964, and some of the interior decorations were removed. Butterfield Theatres closed the State Theatre in 1982. Taken over by the Hinman Company in 1985, the interior was restored to its original condition. [Cinema Treasures]
