Attraction details
Owner description: Located in North Hobart, the State is a local independent cinema that has entertained generations of Tasmanians for over 100 years. In addition to eight cinema screens, we also have a boutique bookstore, cafe bar and rooftop cinema. Our cinema is licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying a movie!

What a great place to see a movie (and comfortable seats too!), enjoy a glass of wine, cup of coffee and a light meal......or perhaps all of the above. Lovley building beautifully refurbished and great ambience. The only downside is that some of the staff can be less than friendly. Put a smile on those dials and really round out the experience people.....

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!

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 .

There's so much more to this than just a cinema. Coffee shop, adjoining bookstore, licensed cafe and a great range of quality films from all over the world.

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.
