The largest and nicest of East Baltimore theatres, the State opened in 1927, was redecorated in 1940, and closed for good in 1963. Although not a downtown house it was famous for good vaudeville and a small but boisterous organ (which still plays on in the home of a local organ enthusiast). It lay shuttered for years until the encroaching nearby Johns Hopkins University (School of Medicine) gutted the theatre for office space.
