This venue is known in the region for its “fantastic” sound system. Unfortunately, the projectionist has not found the volumn control.

The theatre is staffed with volunteers who are very accommodating.

Michael Moore was/is instrumental in bringing the attraction to TC, so be guided accordingly.

Note: being hearing impaired, I remove my hearing aids before screening starts.

The State Theater is a wonderful experience where the magic of movies come to life again. From Saturday morning matinees to free popcorn nights and late night bargain showings the State is the best. The sound and picture quality is excellent. Seating is comfortable and not cramped. One of many nice touches is when a live person introduces the film and coming attractions. The State is truly a wonderful experience.

Loved this place. The seating is elevated, so you don't have to worry about a tall person sitting in front and blocking your view. The seats are really comfortable and they have some really nice little touches that make it a great place like, twinkle start on the ceiling, coconut oil on the popcorn (healthy) and the snack and drink are so cheap! They don't show the newest movies but as far as a movie going experience its the best around.

Need we say more, check it out. Great sky view, sound, seats and the best prices on concessions. All run by the best volunteers.

The State Theater is a true Traverse City landmark. Join as a member and see movies for $6.00. Volunteer to assist and receive vouchers for movies, parking in the parking deck and free popcorn!
We owe much to those who have worked so hard to create this fantastic example of what can be done when people work for the common good!

The State Theatre in Traverse City has a rich and interesting history. It is run by local volunteers, screens the hidden gems of the movie world, and contrary to one review, has wonderful seats and sight lines. The sound system is top notch, the ambiance is elegant 1920s. Please see a movie here, voted as the best place in the world (yes, the world!) to see a movie

This is the home theater of Michael Moore's Traverse City Film festival. He chose the memory foam seats , as well as the Retro design to make this one of the most attractive movie houses in the US. The selection of films covers a wide spectrum of Arthouse films, independents, foreign, docs and community relevant films/events. You will not see anything but great movies there.

Local celebrity influence and updated small town theater makes this a must go cinema in Traverse City, MI. I have seen two free international animation series that were excellent. Old classics are a quarter. Selma ran free for students. No one is forgotten. The best of commercial runs plus Oscar contenders and excellent but barely known films are carefully selected to educate as well as entertain. There is a summer film festival gaining national attention. Be pleased the small town looks on the outside pack real power on the inside. Besides, you can wait by tilting your head back and look at constellations on the celing. Concessions have a real variety and sometimes the popcorn is for free. During the February comedy festival, there are many family and child centered ice activites. The street in front of the theater is blocked. This year, there happened to be a blizzard during the chief weekend. I got to ride a Ferris wheel in nearly white out conditions. Yet, I got a great view of downtown. How many can say that and all for nothing but attendance and pleasure. Run by smart volunteers, this place is a work of art and love.
