Shannon Anthony, State Theatre Manager and Jake Zimmers, Vice President

The Boyertown Area Community is ready to welcome back the State Theatre.  The tradition of movies in Boyertown was started in 1912 when the Lyric Theatre was built by George Unger, William Sabol, Newton Erb and William Schaeffer.  The silent movies of 1912 are now the 21st Century hi-tech digital movies of 2017 as the  State Theatre has been refurbished and a new $100,000 digital projector with 17 speakers installed, ready to show movies. The Grand Opening will be on Friday, May 26, 2017 with the feature film being, Disney’s, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN:  Dead Men Tell No Tales.  The State Theatre is managed and operated by the State Theatre Preservation Society, a 501 c (3) nonprofit corporation.  First run movies will be featured as well as classics and family favorites.  The State Theatre Board of Directors is developing a theatre program for children’s birthday parties as well as special pre-movie social events for adult groups. The movie Marquee will let you know what is happening, as will the State Theatre website,  The theatre is located at 61 N. Reading Ave. Boyertown.
