I visited Savannah in September 2011, and I believe this cinema has been demolished.

“Historic Signs of Savannah,” by Justin Gunther (Google Books preview,) says that the Odeon Theatre had been renamed the State by 1950, and was demolished in 1960 to make way for the First Federal Savings Bank building.

I just added a 1948 photo of the Odeon as the State Theatre. State should be added as an additional name for the Odeon.

The Odeon was one of the five movie theaters listed at Savannah in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory.
