Film Sound

You should hear us now!

One of your most frequent requests has been to upgrade our cinema sound system. We're thrilled to report that we not only heard your appeals, we took them to heart. However, we didn't just upgrade the system, we replaced it with an all-new, state-of-the-art, 22-speaker Dolby surround-sound system. We take the presentation of film very seriously, and think we have finally provided a film-going experience that we can be proud of, and that we know you'll enjoy now and for years to come.

Experience our big, rich cinema sound

The roster of films you'll find when you scroll down will introduce you to the new, high-impact surround-sound system and towering speakers behind the screen that deliver crisp, clear dialog, the full impact of audio effects and big, rich cinema sound -- just what you have been asking for! Thanks to Collins Electrical Company and the cinema sound experts at Boston Light & Sound, The State's auditorium is being brought up to the presentation standards of such prestigious film festivals as Sundance, Tribeca, Telluride and the TCM Classic. At last, The State's cinema sound system will faithfully reproduce cinema audio as the films' directors intended it to be! We want you to experience our cinema sound like you've never heard it before so, join us for a week of some of Hollywood's most enjoyable offerings as we debut our new system.

Counting on our community for support

The new sound system was designed and installed at great expense. As a small, privately funded non-profit organization, we rely on the support of our community, and we are looking to you to help us fund this project. Your generous donations will allow us to continue upgrading our theater with projects such as installing the new sound system, replacing the current movie screen and adding a motorized curtain and digital to our projection repertoire. We want to ensure that you have a quality experience every time you visit us! Donate today and you will be contacted via email with a "thank you" gift recognizing your generosity.
