The State Theatre was one of nine Indiana houses at which National Theatre Supply had recently installed a Walker Silver Sheet screen, according to The Film Daily of January 18, 1936. With a new screen, it might have been either a new theater or an older house, perhaps of a different name, being renovated. The State is mentioned a few times in trade journals in the 1940s and 1950s, but the only earlier theater name I’ve found for Crothersville was all the way back in 1918, when the July 11 Film Daily mentioned the New Grand Theatre. Crothersville does not appear in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory.

Address is 105 E. Main Street and it is still standing. It closed in 1959, became Leo’s Laundry in the 70s, a pool hall in the 80s and later an athletic club. It was most recently Redneck Computers. As of 2021 a furniture business was slated to go into it.
