The Historic State Theatre is located in Downtown Minneapolis on Hennepin Avenue. This theatre was built in the 1920's and has old fashioned theatre elegance. It was restored in the 1990's to its former beauty. The State Theatre is a great place to see a concert, play, or other special event. You can also rent the upstairs balcony lobby for dinner parties or work functions before or after a show. The State Theatre is smaller than the Orpheum, so it is used for slightly smaller events. Its lobby is more casual and easier to pop in and out of than the Orpheum. It is conventiently located very near Rock Bottom Brewery and Palamino restaurants, for before or after show dining. Treat yourself to a show at the State! You won't be dissapointed.
