State Theatre Portland

Private Events

The State Theatre, located at 609 Congress Street in the heart of Portland, Maine’s Arts District was originally built as a first-run movie house in 1929. The historic building recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation to restore its glory. The bi-level venue has an ornate period lobby, amazing sight-lines from any seat in the house and ample green rooms. Flexible seating plans, comfortable bar areas and a renovated kitchen make the State Theatre an excellent choice for a wide range of events. From movie premiers, CD release parties and seminars to private special celebrations, the State Theatre can easily transform for a wide range of events.
