Went to concert here

Great place for a show. Sound is good, decent prices. Not bad at all. I'd recommend checking it out if you want to see someone here.

Visiting Ithaca and walking around the Commons before dinner, we came across the State Theatre, and Lucinda Williams and Buick 6 performing that evening. We got great seats in the balcony, and enjoyed 3+ hours of their bluesy rockin' music. Caveat: no airconditioning, and it was HOT, but the show was great!

Went there for the first time to see George Thorogood and want to return for other shows! Absolutely the most impressive venue I have ever seen. Takes you back in time when movie entertainment was king. Acoustics are perfect and the decor is amazing. If you go, check out the "coat of arms" display on the ceiling directly above the... More

Nothing like watching a good comedian or a great band play on this historic stage! I go as often as I can to watch a show!

I just saw a Led Zeppelin Tribute Band, Get the Led Out, at the State Theater in Ithaca, NY. The band was remarkably spot-on. It was a 2 1/2 hour show with one intermission. If you like Led Zeppelin, this is the group of performers for you. The State Theatre is in the process on being refurbished. I can tell... More

I have seen several plays and concerts in this fine old theatre. I am so proud of Ithaca for keeping the space alive. It is a chance to experience a large, ornate theatre that conjures up endless speculation about its rich past. I have been here about five times for different types of events and the audience has always appeared... More

There's some big name acts that come to the State Theatre for a small town like Ithaca. It is nice inside with plenty of seating.

We've been to concerts, children's theater, and comedy at the State Theatre of Ithaca. Acoustics are good, the crowd is friendly, and the venue is within walking distance of many good restaurants and shops. We generally park a few blocks away and walk- saves time and frustration in finding a parking spot.
