The sun is out (kinda), the snow is beginning to melt (sorta), and parking spaces on Front Street are becoming harder to find, so you know what that all points to: Spring is here! And that means it’s a very special time at the State Theatre. It’s Spring Break time!

Spring Break is a chance to indulge in an veritable moviegoing smorgasbord the likes of which can be found nowhere else -- a full week of FREE FILMS. That's right. FREE. 7 Days. 37 Movies. All FREE! We ain’t foolin’.

We've got some comforting classics you've seen before plus new titles (and themes) that we've never shown before. And don't worry, FREE Spring Break Week is just around the corner! Warm weather can't be that far away!
