The State Theatre in State College, Pennsylvania is a non-profit community theatre. It was originally built as a movie theatre for RCA Films in 1938 at a cost of $70,000 (approximately $1,172,790 in today's dollars) and operated as such until March 2001.
After several years of being used for other purposes, the theatre building was extensively refurbished and re-opened in December 2006 as a state-of-the-art venue for theatre, dance, music, film, concerts, and other regional and international performances.
