The State Theatre is located at 609 Congress Street in the heart of the Portland Arts District. Presenting the finest in national performing arts, the State exists to enrich lives while establishing relationships between music, the arts and residents of Maine and New England.
There's not a bad view in the house. Hit the balcony bars when you can, much less crowded.
There are almost no bad seats. Great venue.
Beautiful renovated theatre. The drinks leave a bit to be desired. Go to Congress Bar and Grill a few storefronts down on Congress st if you want a great drink and meal.

I love the venue. Good place for a concert and think it would be great for love theatre as well.
State Theatre is a nice venue for music. The atmosphere is intimate and the acoustics good. The architecture is nice, well appointed inside. Perfect for Jim Brickman, who didn't disappoint.
Try the seltzer🍋
Easily my favorite small concert venue. Not a bad seat our standing area in the house and a great lineup every year.
Love the State Theatre! Always have! They've really given it an Amazing makeover! Its Portland's Place to go for Excellent Concerts & Shows!
The State gets great acts but with no smoking area or readmission they set themselves up for failure. The security is heavy handed and ultimately a buzz kill. TSA style pat downs at the door.
Well kept neat little theater with a descent in house PA. There is actually a dock for load in too, which is a bonus for an old theater.
State has great music
Bring your earplugs. Apparently the sound mixers don't realize that turning all the levels up doesn't make the show rock more, it just causes headaches.
One of the best venues in the state... if the beer lines get crazy don't forget about the upper bars - including the upper balcony.
Upstairs at the rail FTW
The bass can rock the balcony. It is not an earthquake.
can't wait for Toots!!
