State Theater showing more silent films

posted by Coressel on December 18, 2007 at 7:42 am


From today’s Springfield News-Sun:

One of only two surviving downtown movie theaters, the State officially is vacant again.

The other theater, the Regent, is just now beginning the slow march toward renovation with a new roof after 15 years of sitting empty.

But the State — while it needs work, too — at least has had activity going on inside.

“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” with a new live score will be shown in late March, 2008. I’ve been given the go-ahead to try to start a new classic film series at the State Theater.
