Previous Names: Eaco Theatre, State Theatre
Originally called the Eaco Theatre, it opened during the World War I era and was in the typical opera house style of the time.
In 1940, the owners hired Richmond architect A.O. Budina to modernize the theatre, which would be re-named the State Theatre.
According to a report in the 1941 Film Daily Year Book: "The front portion of the house was completely gutted and several rows of seats were removed. A new foyer, lobby, and parlor were provided, together with powder room and the latest in toilet facilities. The entire auditorium was re-decorated in the Regency style, which seems to a vogue at present. The result is a very homey type of small theatre, and considered by qualified observers as a most successful one."
In the 1960’s? the roof collapsed. Ony the four walls survived and it now operates as an outdoor theatre during summer months, presenting performing arts and movies as the Crute Stage.
