Review of State Theatre

The State Theater is an enchanting movie theater in downtown Traverse City. I'm old enough to remember velvet chairs and a huge screen with velvet drapes that slowly raise up when the movie begins. There is an audible gasp when one enters this theater. First of all, the ceiling is a rendition of a night sky, complete with constellations. The walls are covered in rich fabrics and subdued lighting, reminiscent of old-time theaters. I like that there are volunteers at the box office and the candy counter, keeping costs down while providing entertainment for all of us. Such a beautiful experience!

its special to us, all staffed with volunteers, and then they sponsor other events, just great home town but high end thinking going on, comfortable seats, you can find free parking, its right down town
one could catch a movie while another would shop, or go to the beach for a few hours, everything is very walk friendly

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

I love what our community has done with The State! It is really amazingly beautiful inside and they show an awesome selection of throwback films on Friday nights around midnight. It is a great way to kick off a weekend... meet some friends downtown for dinner then beverages and close the evening with flicks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Dirty Dancing! Prices are great and the volunteers who run it are just amazing and you should give them all a hug (or a high five...whichever you're comfortable with). The State is like Traverse City's Phoenix. Thank you to those that helped it rise from it's proverbial ashes.
