The State Theatre opened in May 1929. I do not know too much about the State Theatre, except that it was closed near the end of the 1980’s. It was located at the end of Main Street in Newark, right near the University of Delaware campus. They would show revival and older films (I saw “Blade Runner” there in 1984). They showed “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” just about every weekend and “The Song Remains the Same” from time to time.
The State Theatre was torn down in the mid-1990’s (I think) to make room for a small shopping mall. If anyone has any information, it would be appreciated.
