The State looks as bad now as it did in 1984:

The Capitol Theatre was located in downtown Mercedes and likely the name given to a former silent theatre in town. It was given a streamlined makeover relaunching as the State Theatre on March 25, 1937 with Joe E. Brown in “When’s Your Birthday.” The State Theatre closed July 29, 1964 with a double feature of “The Incredible Mr. Limpet” and “Hatari.”
