So very much looking forward to visiting this historic theater. Unfortunately, Trip Advisor has not removed it from their listings. It is regrettably CLOSED.

The State Theatre brought Blues to Culpeper tonight! It was such a treat to hear their upbeat blend of blues, jazz, big band and I-don't-know-what-else! Loved it! Thanks, State Theatre!
