State College to celebrate The State Theatre

STATE COLLEGE– Mayor Donald Hahn has proclaimed Oct. 15 as The State Theatre Day in the Borough of State College and encourages all residents and visitors to celebrate this significant milestone for The State Theatre by attending the wonderful events held there.

The State Theatre was opened 80 years ago, on Oct. 15, 1938 as a Warner Brothers movie theatre.

After being rescued from ruin at the turn of the century by a group of dedicated community members, the theatre reopened in 2006 to become Central Pennsylvania’s community performing arts center.

They offer a variety of show types including concerts, movies, burlesque, plays, comedy, and more!

The State Theatre provides both homegrown and nationally renowned artists with a venue perfectly suited for putting their talents on display. They also partner with over 45 local non-profit organizations annually to help raise awareness and funds for their causes.

Their mission is to entertain, enrich, educate, and inspire. They strive to generate a tradition of arts entertainment, understanding and enjoyment for succeeding generations in the Centre region and beyond.

Join Mayor Donald Hahn in congratulating The State Theatre on their 80th anniversary!
