I have attended the State theatre for movies, educational programs and live shows. I love the "feel" of walking into the intimate lobby, sitting in the comfortable seats and enjoying the artistic decor. I'm always ready to go back!

And for Hollywood films that aren't blockbusters. Very good sound system. It's an old theater that has been restored. Occasional music acts, a nationally recognized slam poetry contest that fills all 660 seats. Wine beer and cocktails to get you through a movie.

The beautiful lobby, and 2 tiered seating is perfect for entertainment! The lobby serves beer, wine and some pre-mixed drinks. The theatre has a lovely interior and the sound for live events is fantastic! A multi-purpose site, that is also rented for private events.

The state is an old theater but well maintained. usually only used for small events. Must check with scheduling to see when it used and what is the event.

Theater is spacious, comfortable seats, and well decorated. It brings back good memories of the old days when going out to movies was popular.
