The March 2, 1937, issue of The Film Daily had this item:

“Lexington, Va. — Warner Bros, is replacing the theater which was destroyed by fire and is building a new fireproof house in typical American Colonial style here. Theater is to be called the ‘State,’ and the planning and construction of this building have been entrusted to the architectural firm of John Eberson.”

It’s quite annoying that three of the images on this theater’s photo page, including the one currently displayed above, are posted upside down.
