“Magnificent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Who cares what the show is, a visit here is an experience in itself. OK, the show probably does matter but it is a wonderful old world lavish Gothic and art deco building that always impresses.

“STATE THEATRE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a most beautiful "Old World" Cinema which is now used as a Theatre for live shows and plays. It is like walking back in time to step through the front doors. Has been used in many Commercials because of its charm.

“An elegant place of times gone by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

This place has a very special feel and should remain as an integral part of Sydney's history. It is so gracious. I'm sure there are places such as this all over the world, and this is Sydney's.

“State Theatre Sing-a-long Sound of Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

You can dress up or just sing and join in the good fun for people of all ages. You don't even have to know the words of the songs as they are on the screen whenever the songs start to be performed by the original Julie Andrews and co. The State Theatre is gorgeous with plenty of well spaced out seating on two levels. Seating in the stalls is easy access but getting out did require climbing a small mountain of stairs that was a bit unexpected.The theatre is easy to find in the CBD and there are lots of places close by to eat before or afterr the show
