Operated down the street from Loew’s Teck Theatre, Broadway Theatre and Shea’s Theatre, this opened as Loew’s State Theatre in October 1921. It was equipped with a Moller 3 manual 17 ranks organ. It had a chandelier in its auditorium in its day. In 1925 the original Moller organ was replaced by a Moller 3 manual 32 ranks instrument.
It closed as a movie theatre in 1970, and was then used by Harvey & Corky Productions for rock concerts. Recall the balcony would pulsate up and down if audience stamped their feet (waiting for encore, etc.) During the same time would show movies on Saturday nights, targeting the same rock concert audiences. Demolished and Burger King restaurant now occupies the site.
