What Is The Sky Suite? And How Do I Rent It?Back to topWhat Is The Sky Suite? And How Do I Rent It?
The State Theatre Sky Suite is the best way to experience our live shows in a private setting for you and your party. The suite was renovated from the venue's original projection room from its movie theater days of the 30's to a spacious suite with a large panoramic opening that looks out on the entire room. The room holds up to 20 guests and is a perfect option for birthdays, bachelor(ette) parties, anniversaries, or for fans who just enjoy the space away from the crowd but still want to watch the show.
If you're interested in renting the suite, please email SkySuite@TheStateTheatre.com
