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.
