Eau Claire community says one last goodbye to the State Theater

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Tuesday Eau Claire residents are saying goodbye one last time to their beloved theater. 

There’s a lot of history behind the State Theater. It was first built in 1920s and was designed to be a vaudeville theater.

Vaudeville theaters were used for touring acts such as jugglers, small circuses and musical acts. 

Eau Claire Regional Arts Center Director of Visual Arts, Rose Dolan-Neill, said it’s important for everyone to see it one last time. 

"To our community, to our arts community, to all of the visual artists who have displayed their work in our gallery, we want them to explore, to feel comfortable to say goodbye to their past home, and then soon we’ll be saying hello to our future," Dolan-Neill said. 

The open house features food trucks, art, and music while saying one last goodbye. It ends at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The State Theater is still up for sale.
