Mystery question:  What was the last movie shown at the State Theatre before its closing in September of 1981?

The answer to this question was a little more complicated than we expected.  The John Travolta feature "Blow Out" was said to be the last movie to play at the State Theatre before its closing. The title of the film remained on the marquis long after the building had been closed. However, that has been questioned by some who say that the last film featured was "Raiders of the Lost Arc" and Blow Out was advertised but was never screened. The movies were respectively released in June and July of 1981, and either answer could be true. Now our question is, does anyone remember if Blow Out was actually the last film or was it Raiders of the Lost Arc. If anyone has the answer, please call us at 570-258-1367......
