Built in 1936, The State Theatre operated as a popular movie house until the late 1980’s. The first theatre on the East Coast to be centrally air-conditioned, the State was the flagship of the family-owned Neighborhood Theatres chain which also operated, among others, the Glebe (now a Duron paint store), the Buckingham (now a Post Office) and the Jefferson (now a Chile’s restaurant).

A multi-million dollar restoration in the late 1990’s turned it into the Washington Metro area’s favorite new venue for live music and private events. The full theatrical stage is original, as are the 200 balcony seats and both lobbies. The theatre seats on the main floor were removed to allow for the re-design of the auditorium which now accomodates full service dining, standing and dancing areas and two full service bars. The elegant restoration also added larger bathrooms and a professional kitchen for dining and catering private events. The State has an extensive team of catering professionals including a classically trained European chef.

Located as the centerpiece of Falls Church’s Historic District, The State Theatre is minutes from downtown Washington D.C. and Tyson’s Corner and less than a mile from the East Falls Church Metro station.
