state theatre

When the State Theatre opened in 1921, it was considered one of the most technologically advanced and elaborate theatre in the United States. Designed by architect J.E.O Pridmore in a free Italian Renaissance style, it featured a well-driven air conditioning system and a stage made of glass that allowed for dramatic lighting underneath.

In 2012, Lewis Black recorded a performance here for the TV movie, In God We Rust. I watched ten minutes of it and didn't laugh, so I turned it off.
