We attended Elvis meets the Beatles concert last night and could not have been happier with our seating and view of the stage. Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

Went to a jazz concert here and wow what a venue!! Not so much for jazz but as a performance venue.Truly amazing old world charm. The chandeliers in the concert hall are spectacular and stunning. Roomy and comfortable seats and a step back in time. So glad I saw it.

We went to the State Theatre last night to see a show featuring The Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison, what a fantastic night and in the best theatre in Sydney. The Everly Brothers (Robertson Brothers) were excellent, sang all of our favourites, the gentleman who played Roy Orbison, well, I have to say that when he came on stage you... More

Attended the State Theatre during the Sydney Film Festival, it was the last thing I did on my concluding day in Australia. Although not totally familiar with the history, the theatre's decor and architecture was nothing short of historically stunning. Having attended many films inside of various theatres, the State Theatre was certainly near the top!

We went to see Florence and the Machine here and were blown away. Such a beautiful old theatre in Art Deco style, it's not too big so even those seated near the back can see the stage perfectly. Amazing acoustics and back drop for the band. Can't wait to see the next event here, can't recommend it enough!

This beautiful theatre is a must see for Sydney locals and visitors alike. My parents held their wedding reception in the Ballroom in 1960 and the building is still as beautiful. A delightful experience for everyone.

After our bad dinner experience we cruised into the CBD, prepaid our parking at the Hilton Hotel and walked the short distance. I had never been to the state theatre before, and i have to say WOW, our friends booked seats 4 from the front of stage. What an experience seeing Jimmy Barnes up front and personal. 10 out of...

The State Theatre has a beautiful old-style entrance. Staff were friendly. However, make sure you don't take a photo of the beautiful interior ceiling when inside the theatre - or else they will come over and ask you not to.

My husband & I had the opportunity to visit the State Theatre during the Sydney Film Festival. What an absolutely beautiful building! It has been magnificently preserved & is stunning from its entrance, to the staircase, to the surrounding features on all levels. We watched "Love and Agony" & the acoustics were superb. If you ever get a chance to... More
