Ahh, Spring Break, that time-honored U.S. phenomenon and academic tradition that started during the 1930s as a special vacational period in early spring at universities and schools. For many it's a chance to get away, escape to warmer climates, and get a little R&R. But here at the State, we know better.
We’ve got our own real life Oscar® on display in the lobby, so you know what that means! The Oscars® hit our big screen this Sunday, March 4, 2018!
From the candy canes to the carolers, here at the State Theatre we go all out for our holiday movies (I mean, have you seen our jam packed schedule?). And for our staff members, let's just say the holiday movie traditions don't stop at the theater. Ranging from tried and true classics to things a little more obscure (and a little less Christmas-y), here are some of our staff's favorite films to watch to make the yuletide gay.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, our 2017 holiday film schedule is here! We hope you'll join us for all of the merry movies. Browse the schedule below, purchase your tickets, and download a PDF of the schedule.

Well then Reel Reads is the ticket for you!

Hopefully you followed directions there, 'cause it is time once again for the State Theatre's illustrious Halloween Schedule! It’s several weeks of spooky celebrations leading up to a special Halloween day event! Let’s get started.

The Traverse City Film Festival is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $70,000 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) for the State Theatre's urgently needed new boiler. We are required to match these funds with other public and private dollars -- so your support is appreciated more than ever as we continue to raise funds to purchase and install the energy-effiencent system needed for us to remain open. Learn more about the boiler project here.
