For over 90 years, the historic State Theatre has been entertaining Lehigh Valley audiences with high quality performances and headline entertainers in its main 1,500-seat performance hall and the Acopian Ballroom, and it also welcomes meeting and event planners to lease the facilities.

A rare survivor from America’s grand Vaudeville era, the State Theatre was designed in a style inspired by the Davanzanti Palace in Florence with interior appointments by the legendary Italian artist, Batiste. Painstakingly restored to its original beauty in the early 1990s, the theatre is a great consideration space for the most grand event of any size.

Performance Hall

With roughly 1,000 seats on the main floor and another 500 in the balcony, the hall affords virtual perfection in spatial acoustics and sight line design. For the ultimate “special” event, whether it involves a performance, lecture, event, or ceremony, consider the State to make it most special. Rates for the main floor are found here.

The Acopian Ballroom
Above the theatre is the grand ballroom, named for Sarkis Acopian, whose family’s contribution to the theatre allowed for complete renovation of this magnificent space. Offering a full catering kitchen adjacent to the hall, the Acopian Ballroom offers a dramatic and functional space for your large group needs. The Acopian Ballroom can accommodate 200 for dining and 300 for receptions.

Easton Hospital Gallery

The contemporary Easton Hospital Gallery space can accommodate 120 dining and 200 for receptions. The Easton Hospital Gallery Annex is perfect for smaller meetings (maximum 30). The modern gallery, designed by Spillman Farmer, strikes a stark contrast to the historic detail of the theatre and ballroom and provides a complimentary backdrop for the rotating displays of local artists’ work.

The Mezzanine/Lobby
The breathtaking decor and soaring visuals will make your Mezzanine/Lobby reception a memorable one. If the classic feel of the opulence and drama of the theatre is what you are looking for, this two-level reception area is perfect for your needs.


Parking is available at the City of Easton Municipal Garage at 3rd and Ferry Streets. A free Trolley (pick up at 3rd & Pine) will transport you from the parking garage to the State Theatre before the show and back again after the show. The State Theatre Trolley is sponsored by Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network.
