Very roomy seats and aisles. Inexpensive drinks and soda. Always have great movies for adults and special shows for children.

My boyfriend and I went to the theatre on a Thursday evening. It wasn't too packed and the prices were great. Even better, the obedience of the place. It was adorably decorated, beautiful inside the theatre. We couldn't have been happier with our experience and cannot wait to return!

Visiting the State is always a highlight to my time in Traverse City. The old time feel is second to none; never dingy or unkempt. Low prices on concessions make getting 'the whole' experience a reality. Great spot for great fun!

New Years Eve we decided on a light dinner and a movie. We had not been to the State for a while so I purchased tickets on line and we walked down to it after dinner. The restoration is beautiful.

My Wife and I saw "Birdman" and were VERY impressed by the theatre itself, the amazing volunteers who staff it, the concessions, and the experience as a whole. Michael Moore should get some sort of award for making this such a perfect place to see movies and re-visit a historical location.

Large screen, balcony seating, stars of the Northern sky on ceiling, extra large seats, very pleasant volunteers that make going to a movie there extremely pleasant. A real gem thanks to the innovational thinking on the part of Michael Moore.

Take in a movie at the classes State Theater in TC. This large auditorium is a great place to see a film on a large screen. The popcorn and candy prices are very reasonable too.

This awesome, restored theater is worth a second and third look. It's absolutely beautiful inside. It's worth buying a ticket just to see the theater. Every seat is a good seat. The screen is enormous. It takes you back to glory days of cinema.
