What a great cinema. Serve coffee and cake. Greatest range of movies in Hobart. Eight cinemas. Small cozy inside and very comfy seats. Very helpful and friendly staff. So impressed we watched a second movie. We will definitely be going back to this one.

I always enjoy a visit to the State Cinema... At the State you can enjoy a drink while watching the movie of your choice, and the food available in the cafe area is delicious. The State offers a great array of art house movies, and occasionally some popular movies. There is always a great selection of movies to choose from.... More

Extremely accessible by bus ( bus stop right in front, frequency every 10 - 15 minutes from the CBD, 10 - 15 minutes away from the CBD). The choice of movies is like the one at the Dendy in Sydney --- a mixture of the commercial (like The Girl on The Train and Inferno, which we watched) and the artsy... More

Plenty of movie options and cinemas. Staff always friendly and willing to assist. Connected to a bookstore and cafe which is great and makes the experience more than just seeing a film. An enjoyable place to stop for a few hours, only downside is the lack of parking.

Taking in a movie in this glorious old building - excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The service was excellent and the book shop next door is another great distraction.

In the top three places I would recommend in Hobart to go to. The cinema is clean tidy, good selection of films. No obvious bogans in the auditorium, crinkling papers, supping coke, talking, munching etc as you get at the bigger cinema's. A lovely café which can supply a coffee of a meal. All good standard. A great place to... More
