How do I purchase tickets?
The best way to purchase tickets is online! With the introduction of our No-Stress Reserved Seating at the State, you can pick your preferred seats hours or days in advance; then you can take your time with dinner, grabbing your concessions, listening to our new 1940s-style jukebox, or enjoying a drink with friends—all while knowing that the seats you selected are waiting for you when you’re ready to take them.
Can I still buy tickets at the theater right before the show?
You can. We will have two agent-managed stations within the State Theatre.
How far in advance can I purchase my movie tickets?
For our first run films, showtimes will be available beginning most Tuesdays on our website. Gold Card members will be able to reserve their tickets as soon as showtimes are available; all other tickets will be available to purchase most Wednesdays at 10 AM. These times are subject to change based on program availability and holiday schedules; any changes to the schedule will be posted.
For repertory and series programming, tickets will be available when the show is announced.
I received a promo code/voucher. How do I redeem it for a ticket?
Paper vouchers can be redeemed at the agent-managed stations in the State Theatre. They must be exchanged for a ticket prior to entering the auditorium.
Promo codes can be redeemed for tickets online. Look for a button that says “Know a promotion code?” on the ticket selection screen. After you enter the promo code, the Ticket Redemption option will become available. Proceed with your transaction.
Can I buy tickets to State films at the Michigan, or vice versa?
You can, though please know that it may take longer during busy periods at either theater.
