“GREAT NIGHT OUT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is the cinema complex for the discerning theatre goer. Great selection of movies, popular and art house, excellent café, a rooftop cinema, throw in a book shop, food and wine and this one has something for every one. Pick a movie and have a night out in North Hobart. Great stuff!

“Have to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Tasmania's State Theatre has been beautifully renovated. There's a choice of large cinemas and very personal smalerl cinemas some only 30 seats. In summer also an open air cinema so beautiful on a hot ( yes we do have HOT) summers night . Imagine yourself sitting outside, a glass of wine or cold beer in hand, picking at some delicous morsel of food , watching a thrilling movie. Ahh- what better way to spend a leisurely night . There is a well establish cafe on the ground floor with high quality food at a good price .

“a liitle piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The State theatre has ensured the return of the public to picture theatres. Restored and expanded, the State ensures that viewing of movies once again is a very enjoyable thing to do. It is fantastic you can take a beer or wine into the theatre to enjoy whilst watching your favourite movies. The cafe serves great snacks,meals and coffee.

“entertainment in Hobart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This cenema is well worth going to, it shows anything and everything not just the normal films of the day.

One can get a meal there or if the weather right watch the film out in the open up on the roof.
