TUPPER LAKE — After more than a year of the State Theater being closed due
to the COVID-19 pandemic, owner Sally Strasser is excited to start showing
movies there again. A big reason why is because the community has been
raising money to keep the State open for new movies after two essential
pieces of equipment failed while the screens were closed to the public.

COVID claimed both of the theater’s computer servers through underuse. The
technology is what allows the State to screen new movies.

“It’s pretty important,” Strasser said.
