The State Theatre,
South Bend, IN.
South Bend has had a number of theatres throughout the years. One of them being the State Theatre on S. Michigan Street, downtown. Built in 1919, it was originally the Blackstone Theatre. While as a young boy, they had four theatres on Michigan Street and one on Colfax Street. Those theatres no longer show movies. The Palace Theatre, another painting that I have done, is now the Morris Performing Arts Center, which now is part of the Broadway Performances brought to the area. Other Theatres I have painted are: The Palace in South Bend, IN; The Reese in Plymouth, IN; Fox in Detroit, Atlanta’s Fox, Fox #2 in Atlanta; The Chicago Theatre; The Los Angeles Theatre; Loew’s Theatre in Jersey City, NJ, Warner Theatre, Elkhart and the Lerner Sign in Elkhart, Indiana.
