A landmark reborn: The restored, renovated State Theatre to debut soon

ByBill DeYoung

St. Petersburg’s newest performing arts venue will most likely debut this spring.

It’s not new, exactly. The State Theatre closed in 2018, a concert hall beset by numerous problems, including fire code violations that significantly reduced its capacity, which severely undercut management’s ability to attract big-name acts.

By then, the State had been in a state of physical (and financial) decline for decades.

Real estate broker Kevin Chadwick then paid $2.1 million for the building at 687 Central Avenue. Chadwick says renovations are just about complete, and the “new” State Theatre might be ready for a late-April opening, as a multi-purpose venue for concerts and other performance events.
