State Theatre Description
The State Theatre was designed by Portland architect Herbert W. Rhodes, originally containing 2,300 seats. The Congress building it is located in was designed to be a creative combination of Spanish, Italian, and Art Deco aesthetics with elaborate works of art. It was also technologically advanced for its time. It aimed to give audiences the richest film experiences of the era with three projectors and a magnascope, which generated an enormous and quality picture.
