HISTORIC STATE THEATRE The current State Theatre sits on a site long recognized as Red Bluff’s entertainment center.  In the earliest days of Red Bluff, an entertainment pavilion was located on the site.   It was used for concerts, speeches, and other public events.  After the pavilion was destroyed by fire, the Opera House was built and opened in 1908. By 1928 the Opera House had fallen on hard times.  The building was in disrepair and desperately needed to be modernized.  The syndicate of local businessmen sold the theatre in 1928 to T & D, Jr. Enterprises, a theatre chain that owned and operated theatres throughout Northern California.  The remodeling of the old Opera House took six months and when it reopened, it had a new name:  The State Theatre…. Where talking pictures were shown as well as live stage acts.  It quickly became Red Bluff’s only theatre.  The community was devastated when it burned in February 1944. The cause of the fire remains a mystery, but it started late at night in the theatre’s attic.  Only the manager’s office adjoining the theatre’s lobby and the building’s concrete walls remained.  Unfortunately, the US had entered World War II and all construction resources were committed to the war effort.  The State Theatre in Red Bluff was one of the few theatres that received precious allocations of building materials.  Construction began   on April 24, 1945.  A year later, after all kinds of unique difficulties in purchasing and transporting construction materials, the new State Theatre  opened to the public on May 24, 1946 to the enthusiastic support of the Red Bluff community. Over the years, the theatre has been more than just a place to see movies.  It has been the site of high school graduations and many special events.  Long-time residents may remember it as the scene of their first date.  Some say the neon lettering that spells out STATE was one of their earliest memories. Others remember waiting to be old enough to sit in the balcony and the award winning murals on the walls…. From early residents who recognized the need for quality entertainment in their thriving community, to those who are currently working to create a community arts center in the theatre the State Theatre is a symbol of the citizens’ commitment to the arts in their community.

CONE KIMBALL PLAZA The Cone-Kimball Building with its famous clocktower stood for 98 years, 1886 to 1984. Pioneer businessmen, Joseph Cone and Gorham Kimball, who wanted to have the best general store building in the region, built it.  That they succeeded was attested to by a San Francisco paper of 1889, which stated that the building was "a monument to the industry, energy and enterprise of the owners, the finest business house north of Sacramento and unsurpassed by any in the state...".  Through the years many businesses flourished in the building and improvements were made, but the basic structure and tower remained unchanged. The ornate and beautiful Victorian clocktower was often called "the Heart of RedBluff".... and, for good reason.  It best symbolized the Victorian background and flavor of the city, and crowned one of the most photographed buildings in the region.
