The State Theatre was opened as a single screen movie theatre in 1928. It was destroyed by fire on March 4, 1958 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

A new State Twin Cinema was built at the same address and opened in 1980 by Lockwood & Gordon Enterprises. It has since been tripled.

Website: Accepts both US and Canadian currency due to its proximity to the border.

As the State Theatre, this cinema is listed in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac under the Lockwood & Gordon circuit of Boston.

The State Theatre opened in 1928, and the original building was destroyed by a fire on March 4, 1958. A post from the St. Croix Historical Society (rather far down this page) says that the State was not rebuilt for many years, and in the meantime Calais movie fans had to attend the theater in St. Stephen, across the Canadian border.

I remember going to the movie theater in Calais a couple times when it opened in the mid-seventies. It was very small as I remember. Mostly had gone to the Queen but in summertime, it was the St. Croix Valley Drive-In.
