It was remodelled in 1947 to the plans of architectural firm William Riseman Associates. It was still operating in 1950. It was twinned in the 1970’s and renamed Star Theatre, operating into the 1980’s.

The State Th. in Nashua is listed in 1942-43 edition of the Motion Picture Almanac as part of Shea-Chain Inc. & Affiliates, 1540 Broadway, New York City. Shea also ran the Tremont Th. in Nashua at that time.

As a teenager I helped the workers take down the Daniel Webster Theatre which was heartbreaking for me
