Downtown Calais – State Cinema


Small town Friday night… well any night of the week actually, you will be hard pressed to find a parking spot near the theater!  From 5:30-6:30 near by restaurants will have a dinner rush followed by patrons promptly lining up at the front door of the Cinema in hopes of getting a good seat.

Being the only Cinema around, you will see faces you haven’t seen in a while travel from up to an hour away to catch a show while they are in town for some shopping.  Sunday Matinee is offered just after lunch and ideal for kids that can’t often make the nightly viewings.

Although it does not offer the reclining seats, multiple show times or food fair of the larger Cinemas you WILL find a friendly face at the door to issue your tickets and guide you to the right theater.  There will also be a couple of high school girls hustling to get everyone’s popcorn and snack trays ready before the 7:00 show time.  A great addition to our downtown area!

Check out show times, ticket rates and current movies on their site or follow them on facebook at the links below!
