Great Local Gem!
Oct 2019
Both the State Theatre and Bijou by the Bay are fantastic places to see a movie. Very high quality movie going experience, and prices on concessions are much more reasonable than other box theater venues. Staff, who happen to be volunteers, are the best! Though shows are limited selections, with the State leaning more toward art pics, you will always see something captivating and the experience is well worth the money! Not to mention the great discounted matinee shows and special events. Don't miss catching a show at the State (or Bijou by the Bay)!

Bring your earmuffs!

This venue is known in the region for its “fantastic” sound system. Unfortunately, the projectionist has not found the volumn control.

The theatre is staffed with volunteers who are very accommodating.

Michael Moore was/is instrumental in bringing the attraction to TC, so be guided accordingly.

Note: being hearing impaired, I remove my hearing aids before screening starts.

Home Town treasure run by volunteers
Nov 2019
Very proud of the volunteers that helped bring a downtown treasure back to life. The volunteer staff is wonderfully friendly. The movies and special events complete the appeal for attending here often.

Great restored theater involved with the community

Great restored theater involved with the community.

This theater has been restored and is staffed by volunteers from the community. I've been there several times and have always been pleased. In addition check out the Bijou by the Bay (a sister theater) also right here in Traverse city

Great Movie Venue
May 2019
don't miss seeing first run and classic movies here. Check their schedule for Saturday inexpensive kids' movies.
They also have special midnight showings and day time showings of classics.
The rehabilitation of this classic theater has been well done. The ceiling is an actual replica of the night's sky. Volunteers operate the ticket booth and refreshment stand. The State is a wonderful, classic theater on Front Street in downtown Traverse City. Many restaurants are in close walking distance.
Make it a night with a movie and dinner.

This movie theater is a Real Community Gem!
Dec 2018 • Couples
The Traverse City State Theater (referred to as "The State' by locals) has been completely renovated in recent years. In addition to the charming decor, it has updated sound and screen technology and really comfy seats. This theater is run as a non-profit and almost all the people you see working there are volunteers. It regularly has 25 cent matinees of classics and kids movies and sometimes hosts free screenings in conjunction with various local festivals and events. It's a great place to get out of the heat... or the cold depending on when you visit. The same non profit also runs Bijou by the Bay. A small, intimate movie theater a few blocks away in Clinch Park by the marina.
