From The State Theatre Homepage: The State Theater is a historic movie theater that’s been restored and adapted for live performances. It is operated by an all-volunteer State Theater Arts Council, with generous support from the community and annual grants from the Missouri Arts Council. Audiences are treated to a wide range of concerts, including jazz, country, bluegrass, folk, classical and gospel, as well as to community plays, traveling theater productions, student workshops, and children’s theater. The theater also is used for special community events and for school plays. It plays an important role in the Northwest Missouri region, with a mission to provide cultural opportunities in a rural area, helping residents study, understand, enjoy and appreciate the arts. It is in downtown Mound City, Missouri, a town of 1,100 people in the northwest corner of the state. Mound City is located on I-29 (exit 84), halfway between Kansas City and Omaha. Their website
