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!

We love State Cinema. It's our Friday night treat! They have (nearly) everything right.. Love the location, seating, staff and movie choices, but the meals are bland bland bland! We are working through the menu - lasagne, gnocchi, meatballs - where's the flavour? The desserts are Fabulous though ..

Saw Stoker at the State Cinema in North Hobart - it was cheap movie night and we had the cinema to ourselves! Couldn't believe it. The boysenberry swirl choc top was wicked, and the movie was also. The film selection was far superior to that of Hobart's other, bigger theatre. Lovely service, beautiful building,can't believe this place isn't busier! Skip the movie theatre chains and GO HERE!

Great food, wine, and venue. Always clean even when its bustling.
Staff are friendly and attentive.

Parking can be an issue, but don't let that put you off. Can't wait for the roof top cinema again this year

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!
