State Theatre - Minneapolis History

State Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota was first opened in 1921 and for a long time was viewed as a technological achievement and as one of the most advanced and state of the art theaters in the country. It originally featured a glass floor on its stage which allowed for brilliant lighting effects and hosted silent films, newsreels, and daily concerts on its Wurlitzer pipe organ. For a long time the theater featured the biggest movie screen west of the Mississippi and was one of the most popular movie theaters in the country. In the late Seventies it was purchased by the Jesus People Church and went under renovations to both the interior and exterior as it became a church. In 1991 the theater was again renovated and brought back to life as the La Salle Plaza redevelopment and has been home to Broadway productions and concerts ever since.

State Theatre is home to some of the best theatrical productions staged in Minnesota including productions of I Love Lucy, Avenue Q, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Sweeney Todd, and more. Additionally, concerts by the biggest musical acts in the world are held on State Theatre's stage including performances by Sarah McLachlan, Jackson Browne, Broken Bells, Buddy Guy, The Pixies, Spoon, and more. Speeches by the likes of David Sedaris as well as special events like movies featuring the hilarious commentary of Rifftrax are also commonplace at the theater.

State Theatre Seating Layout

State Theatre seats 2,181 guests and is still as fantastic of a place to see a performance as it was when it first opened nearly a century ago and was recognized as a technological marvel. There is not a bad seat in the house and renovations have kept the venue up to date with modern sound and lighting systems installed.


Trivia

In 1970 the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid set a record for the longest run for a motion picture in the United States at State Theatre.
