The State Theatre of Ithaca is another example of an old-fashioned large movie theater repurposed and updated for concerts and various gigs of top-name musicians and entertainers. The stage and acoustics were excellent; the seats not so much (cramped, not enough leg room). Downtown Ithaca...More

Saw a great concert, with great sound and an excellent selection of concessions at less than the ridiculous prices most theaters charge. Staff was friendly and it was a great night. Seats are a little cramped.
