The Platte Theatre launched on the north side on May 3, 1925 with Johnny Hines in “The Early Bird” supported by a two-reel comedy, “The High Flyer” and a Pathé newsreel. On July 3, 1928, the venue under new ownership became the Alhambra Theatre.

Equipped for sound under new owners, the theatre relaunched on August 15, 1930, with Jack Oakie in “Hit the Deck” as the Luna Theatre. Taken over by Publix, the theatre was changed to the State Theatre on February 17, 1934 with Andy Devine in “Horseplay” supported by a Cubby, the Bear, cartoon, and two other short subjects. It closed as the State Theatre.
