News About This Theater
The State Theatre opened March 16, 1939 with Eleanor Powell in “Honolulu”. It served the West End of Endicott, home of the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Factory. The theatre was built with Art Deco style fluorishes in the auditorium, and an Art Deco style facade.
From October 18, 1963 the theatre was named the Cinema Endicott and presented more upscale film product. Loews was the last operator of this building. It closed on October 31, 1993 when Loews opened the Town Square 9 in Vestal, NY. The final movie was Tamlyn Tamita in “The Joy Luck Club”. The theatre sat empty for about two years, then was demolished for an Eckerd drug store.
There was a sign on the side of the building that said “THEATRE OF DISTINCTION” but for the last 5 or 6 years of its life the “F” in “OF” fell off, so it was the “THEATRE O DISTINCTION”.
