I have been to the State Theatre a lot of times. It is a great venue. I have seen great comedians here as well as various singers. It's right in the centre of Sydney so there are places around where you can eat. It's a very comfortable theatre. Interesting to look around inside as well.

The State Theatre, is intimate for those small concerts, its a beautiful old Theatre that has been restored to all her glory.

Marvellously appointed, statues, lighting and staircases speak volumes of past eras. This is such an exquisite site - may it always be well cared for and respected.

What a lovely place to see a concert. Just saw Bob Dylan there. Only one down side - The wine was a bit expensive and not very good.

Our hotel is right across the road from the theatre we were seeing a show at. I booked on line and had no idea where the hotel was and was very pleased it was so close

I've been to many events at the State Theatre over the years from the latest musical to watching old movies. (Singalong Sound of Music -the whole audience joins in and has fun - I took my 4 yr old niece last time and she was entertained for the whole long movie). Walking into the state Theatre you can't help but... More

I was shocked when someone was allowed to go to his seat half an hour after the show started. It totally disrupted the experience for me. Why did you lie on ticketmaster and claim there is a lockout period after 4 minutes? Either there is one or there isn't. Don't lie and claim there is one. Such a terrible venue.... More

Was walking past - saw the show currently on and got tickets. So right place - right time. But a great theatre - lovely architecture and ambience. Plan better than I did - see their website.

The State Theatre is a classic theatre and a great venue for performing artists although I would not want to be located at the back of the grand circle. Layout is great, greats are comfortable and there is plenty of leg room. really does take you back to the era of the magnificent picture palaces most cities once had but... More
