Saturday night comedian Eddie Izzard perfomed. He kept the audience, at the State Theatre, laughing. He spoke and mimed on unforgettable, historical people such as Charles I and how loyalist Oliver Cromwell and Charles I didn't jibe. After Charles' death, England had no monarch. The...More

Watch out for summer shows. No a/c so it gets unpleasantly hot sometimes. Seen The Decemberists there twice. Toad The Wet Sprocket once. Love the place. Just not in summer.

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli on March 4th. Reasonably priced tickets and drinks, with fast & friendly bar service at this venue. Not a bad seat in the house. I highly recommend this medium-sized venue for a concert or comedy act!

Visited the State Theatre for the first time with my daughter and niece to see their favorite band last weekend. This place is a great, intimate setting for up and coming bands, there really isn't a bad seat in the place. Granted, we had reserved...More

Beautiful old theater. Headed straight to balcony based on reviews for seating. Sound quality poor for this tribute/benefit concert but it's likely to be better if musicians take time for sound check. Would definitely go again.

Loved the first band - great music, acoustics and lighting. The second band's - the primary band we came to see - audio and light shows were absolutely horrible. This was the first time my wife and I ever walked out of a show before...More

Beautiful venue for a show. Small setting so there isn't a bad place to watch a show. Can see anything here from a comedy show to heavy metal. Great part of the Portland music scene

Going to a concert here is like going to a bar to see someone. I have seen George Thorogood there twice and you can stand and dance without someone giving you a hard time because you are standing. The theatre has been there for years....More

There is no onsite parking. There is on-street parking in the area if you can find it. However, on High street, there is a parking garage. It cost us $20.00 for 3 hours.
