We have been to a couple of shows at this beautiful theatre- wonderful architectural details, stained glass and brass fittings that you just don't see anymore. The seats are a little right for us tall people but we have been fortunate that we have been able to move to other seats. Looking forward to visiting this venue again next year... More

The State Theatre is a beautiful building - genuine grand elegance. Be aware seating is narrow, so for the broader of hip it can be squeezy. It is still worth a visit to enjoy the grandeur.

There are occasional tours of the building and it is wise to book ahead. A magnificent art deco building. of which there are not many left in the world.

Lovely venue, grand in decor and styling. Marble staircase is beautiful but can be a little slippery depending on your shoes. Inside the theatre, the atmosphere is beautiful. Would have been nice if some nibblies, other than ice cream, chocolates were available.

If a show here catches your fancy you should go, if only to take in all the amazing decor. Lots of different shows here, and seats offer more room than ypu often find in an old theatre, particularly upstairs.

Beautiful attention to details in this long-standing theatre house, which I remember from visits over the years and am always happy to return too once again. Lovely atmosphere, which is so different from modern places of theatre.
