The Las Cruces Community Theater is a stage theater, no screen. It will never show movies. Why is it listed in a Cinema listing?
The Film Daily Yearbook, 1943 edition has the State Theatre listed with a seating capacity of 550. It was operated by Fox Intermountain Theatres.
The 1950 edition of F.D.Y. has the State Theatre listed with a seating capacity of 563.
OK, I can live with that. I’ll get some of my photos dusted off and post them. I only have current photos, but I’ll send them along.

This article from the Las Cruces Sun-News has a few lines about the State Theatre, saying that it opened on Christmas Eve, 1941. That date suggests that the State was probably the unnamed theater that was the subject of this item in the August 29, 1941, issue of The Film Daily:
The December 21, 1941, issue of the Las Cruces Sun-News mentioned Guy Frazer as the architect of the new State Theatre, which was scheduled to open Christmas Day. This must have been Guy L. Frazer of the El Paso, Texas, firm Frazer & Benner.
