State Theater, Woodland, CA


The 999-seat State Theater was built in 1936 by Redwood Theatres and Fox West Coast Theatres, to replace a theatre that was destroyed by fire. In 1977, two additional screens were built adjacent to the original theater. Seating in the main original auditorium is on a stadium plan, with a raised section at the rear (no overhanging balcony). The State Theater was closed on September 6, 2010. After a remodel by new operators Cinema West, it was reopened as a 10-screen theatre on June 28, 2017. Woodland, CA. June 1, 2018

  1. This is a 1st: 1st to like 😊. Han Solo or Napoleon Solo (I’m dating myself 😜). Oh yes, great photo.

    • Jane thank you. Woodland and Yolo County has some wonderful photo opportunities. The panoramic previously published is an example.

    • Tina thank you. I’m pleased that this came out so well. It was almost too late by the time I had left Corner Drug Store. The Corner Drug Store will be published tomorrow.

  2. Last year, movie theater attendance sunk to its lowest in 25 years. I hope this nice looking one will eventually survive. Very nice shot in any case!

    • It is sad that theaters continue to be threatened. Some of these beautiful theaters become community theaters. It makes it more difficult for me because their lights are not on every night.
