George Osborne opened the New Star Theatre on September 15, 1923 with movies accompanied by its Page Organ M-X-40 Unit Orchestral and Player. It was offered for sale likely bailing out at the end of a five-year leasing point. It became Fisher’s Star Theatre effective with the August 21, 1928 shows under new ownership.

On February 7, 1929, it was renamed as Fisher’s State Theatre - “The Home of Better Pictures.” On April 26, 1929, it added sound with the film, “Weary River” playing at the grand reopening. It played Vitaphone and Movietone features. The theatre became, simply, the State Theatre operating to the end of a 30-year lease on April 11, 1959 with a great double feature of “Blood of the Vampire” and “Monster on Campus.” The theatre soldiered on with sporadic live events from that point with the Carroll and the local Drive-In being the places to see movies locally.
