During the 2014/15 season, The State Theatre of Ithaca presented over 80 events and saw more than 60,000 visitors pass through our doors. Household names like BB King, Merle Haggard, The Temptations, Doc Severinsen, and Paula Poundstone all graced our stage last season. In addition to our long list of comedians, rock and roll legends and community performances, we’ve added a classic movie series with titles such as It’s A Wonderful Life, Raiders of The Lost Ark and E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial. With continued patronage, we will continue to bring world renowned acts to Ithaca.

Our slate of 2016/17 performers will be announced at the end of July and tickets go on sale on August 1st. Be sure to join our membership program soon to take full advantage of these benefits. As always, additional shows will be announced throughout the year and members will be the first to know what’s happening here.
