State Theatre

This theatre opened as the Rialto Theatre. Fire damage later was repaired and it reopened as the Roxy Theatre. Another fire in April 1941 resulted in another reconstruction into the State Theatre. The balcony was removed in 1937 and there is some evidence that State Theatre was on the second floor and not down on the ground floor. The building still exists as a credit union office.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the State; it’s Card # 403. But no one filled it out, so there is no info and only an undated exterior photo. On an old Xerox copy of this report that I have, someone wrote “Nice looking theater!!” The CinemaData project file on the State has some history including prior names. It was at one time part of the Bernstein & Lieberman circuit of St. John NB.
