Database Manager on May 01, 2015:

The State Theater dates back to at least 1921 when a Kimball theater organ was installed. According to the Hibbing Chamber of Commerce, the State Theater was owned at one time by the uncles (Max, Julius and Sam Edelstein) of singer Bob Dylan. They sold the State Theater in 1976.
