Located in North Hobart, the State is a local independent cinema that has entertained generations of Tasmanians for over 100 years. In addition to eight cinema screens, we also have a boutique bookstore, cafe bar and rooftop cinema. Our cinema is licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying a movie!

Arthouse films as well as features. Up to date technology with a variety of smaller cinemas. Great cafe on site and very close to the well known North Hobart restaurant district. Day and night sessions to cater for all.

An amazing collection of eclectic movies in wonderful cinema spaces. Close to the restaurant strip but you can get small meals on site. There is a outdoor roof top cinema as well but movie screenings are dependent on the weather.

Could immediately tell from the outside that this was a beautiful theatre and it did not disappoint. Beautiful foyer, bar and café, lots of space, small intimate theatres, and a great line-up of films. I love that you can take a glass of wine into...More
