The New State Theater was opened in 1935 as a single-screen movie house with 685 seats. By 1950, it was known as the State Theater.

It has been divided into two auditoriums and is now known as the Empire Twin Theater. It shows first-run films, and has a wonderful Streamline Moderne facade and marquee, with a vertical sign on top of the triangular marquee.

A later, rectangular-shaped sign, somewhat 1960’s or 1970’s-looking in appearance, has been added to the middle of the vertical with the word “Empire” inside.

Yes, your right “in Today’s motion picture world we would never Survive”.Seems like we did okay when I was working in one. For one thing in those days going to movies was still an event,it was fading somwwhat.but today it is like walking into a Bus Stop in Anytown,U.S.A.

The Empire makes a guest appearance in “Cowboys Vs. Dinosaurs” (2015) when dinos run rampant in the town of Livingston, MT. I’ve added a frame cap to the photos page.
