3 of the theaters are gone now and only 1 was left, last I knew in 1991. The only one left is the one that is down a north/south street from the old Palladium-item offices. If I remeber correctly it was the State Theater. Back about 20 or 25 years ago they remodeled the front and gave up their main stree entrance and turned their fire doors in the foyer into their new front entry way. One of the other theaters was torn down because it was no longer safe and the other 2 were too severly damaged from the downtown explosion back in the 60's to be fixed. If I remember correctly.
