State Theatre

The State Theatre opened in 1945 very near the location of the old Perry’s Opera House (1903-1945), a 3-story brick building. The State Theatre was a one-story structure with an old-fashioned false front. It remained in use until at least 1956.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the State; it’s Card # 434. But no one filled the form out, so there is no information, only an undated exterior photo (probably taken in the mid- to late-1940s). The CinemaData project has some info about the State. I have also seen information that the old Perry’s Opera House (aka Dreamland Theatre (a common movie house name in the 1910-era), Perry Theatre) may have been named “State Theatre” during its final years. But I’m not sure of that.
