The State Theatre was built and opened in March, 1936. Designed by architect Erle G. Stilwell, the 700 seat movie theatre was originally decorated in the Mediterranean Revival/Atmospheric style, complete with murals and a lighted star constellation in the ceiling. The theatre had both screen and stage capabilities. In the mid-1950’s, the State Theatre was remodeled to accommodate more modern tastes and the Cinemascope format. The Mediterranean garden wall was removed, the murals painted over and a permanent screen erected. It was operated by the Wilbey-Kincey chain. In 1978, the State Theatre showed its final feature film and was closed. Urban Synergy acquired this building in 2014.
