State Theater - Review

This is a heritage listed theatre in Sydney that has hosted film screenings, live theatre and musical performances ever since 1927 and from 1974 it has been home to the annual Sydney Film Festival. Apart from offering an outstanding performance watching experience, the interiors of this theatre are something to look forward to. Lavishly designed by Sydney architect Henry Eli White who based his work on that of American architect John Eberson in the United States, this theatre incorporates eclectic elements of architecture such as Gothic, Italian and Art deco design. Watching a performance here should definitely be a part of your Sydney itinerary.

State Theater, Sydney Reviews

  • The location is wonderful. The interior is exquisite. The service is excellent. Staff are all so polite and helpful. We recently watched an amazing show here. We were down in the stalls and the view was amazing. It's really a good place to attend concerts.

  • What a wonderful space, both in terms of what you can see here and the theatre itself. Beautiful history and detail, definitely try to leave some time to explore and checkout all the spaces open to you. Attended to see the Sydney Film Festival and this venue is particularly suited to both the festival and for someone returning frequently.

  • What can one give an iconic venue with great historical charm and world class events but five stars. From old buildings we can never expect an experience to be flawless. However, I've thoroughly my every occasion at the State. The Sydney Film Festivals are always vibrant and interesting. What's not to love about the State Theatre.

  • I really love coming here every year for the Sydney Film Festival. It’s great with friends, date night, you name it! The old architecture makes it feel really cosy and timely. Staff have always been really friendly and even helped me out once when I lost my card holder.

  • The State Theatre is an iconic Sydney theatre and venue for live music. It’s great to see it still operating in these modern times. Tonight it opened its doors to the Tex Perkins JR Cash show and its a world class revue of Cash’s life, love and troubled soul. A must see show I might even add that Tex does Cash better than the man himself.
