Located next to the Pawtucket River in downtown Pawtucket, this opened as the Scenic Theatre. On June 7, 1926 it opened as the 1,500-seat State Theatre with the play “The Alarm Clock” presented by The Hall Stock Company. It was also screening movies. The auditorium had seating in orchestra & balcony levels. By 1930 it was taken over by the E.M. Loew’s chain and renamed Capitol Theatre having been equipped with a Pacent sound system and a Western Electric sound system.
In 1948 it was remodelled to the plans of architectural firm William Riseman Associates and was renamed E.M. Loew’s Center Theatre. It closed in the 1950’s and was razed after that.
