State Theatre

You are here Home  > Theaters >  State Theatre

The State Theatre was opened in 1930 with eco friendly geo thermal heat and air system way before it’s time and an acoustically engineered dome for the best sound for the first talkies. People have felt and seen various apparitions and vague whisperings in several places in the State including the stairs, balcony, and peering out the projection room when no one was there. Photographs often show “orbs.”
