TRAVERSE CITY — The Motion Picture Association of America recently named the State Theatre as one of the top 10 theaters in the world.
“We are always happy to get on a list, but when saw this was from the MPAA, we were really thrilled,” said Susan Fisher, the State Theatre’s business manager. “It was incredible.”
The MPAA, the main federation of Holllywood’s six major studios, featured “10 of the World’s Best Movie Theaters” on its website. The list included the State and Tampa Theater in the United States, and eight other theaters worldwide.
The State Theatre was applauded for its special events like the Oscar Award viewing parties, 25-cent family matinees and “admission-free screenings when the temperature breaks 100 degrees.”
