What Is The Sky Suite? And How Do I Rent It?

Back to topWhat Is The Sky Suite? And How Do I Rent It?

The State Theatre Sky Suite is the best way to experience our live shows in a private setting for you and your party.  The suite was renovated from the venue's original projection room from its movie theater days of the 30's to a spacious suite with a large panoramic opening that looks out on the entire room. The room holds up to 20 guests and is a perfect option for birthdays, bachelor(ette) parties, anniversaries, or for fans who just enjoy the space away from the crowd but still want to watch the show.
If you're interested in renting the suite, please email SkySuite@TheStateTheatre.com

Are there assigned seats?

Back to topAre there assigned seats?

No. The State Theatre is general admission - first come, first serve.  HOWEVER, we do take dining reservations for most of our shows.  This is the only way to guarantee a seat at a dining table. Reservations can be made through the box office at 703-237-0300.

Can I eat at the State?

Back to topCan I eat at the State?

Yes you can. 
Most (though not all) of our shows offer the opportunity for you to dine at a table or get food at the bar.  We reserve some of the dining tables in advance for a non refundable fee of $10/pair of seats, and the rest are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Some info about our dining tables:
There is a $10/person food minimum at all dining tables (Beer is not food.  Neither is an appletini).  Tables may be reserved as soon as tickets for a show are on sale, and we stop taking reservations at 5 p.m. the day before the show.  You can make a reservation by calling the box office at 703-237-0300 or stopping by in person.  We are located at 220 N Washington St in Falls Church.  Box office hours are 12pm - 6pm Mon - Saturday and 12pm - 10pm on shownights.

You table will be held for 15 minutes after your reservation time (which is given to you when you make the reservations).  A dining reservation does not get you access to the show, you will also need a ticket. 

If you do not get a seat at one of our tables, food is also available at the bar in the lobby and can be taken throughout the venue.  You may view the menu here (items and prices are subject to change).

Are there age restrictions?

Back to topAre there age restrictions?

For the majority of our shows, you must be 18 or older unless you are accompanied by your parent. 

Some of our shows are 21 or older to enter.  In these cases, you must be at least 21 years old to get in. No Exceptions - even if you come with your parent. 

Age restrictions for each show are always listed on the individual event's details page.  Please check the age limit before purchasing tickets.  No refunds will be given if you show up and don't meet the age requirement.

A $3/person security fee will be collected at the door for patrons under the age of 21.

The venue defers to the performing artist regarding their specific photo/taping policy.  99% of the time, the policy is as follows:  No video, no professional cameras, no taping, no use of flash.  But each band has it's own rules, and can change them as they see fit, so don't bring anything you are not comfortable leaving in your car
