*The Art House Visiting Members Program allows members of a participating theater (such as State and Bijou Members) to purchase tickets at other participating theaters (including the State and Michigan in Ann Arbor) at the member discount by presenting a valid membership card from their home theater.


Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, except for reserved seating events. Arrive 15 minutes before show time to ensure a good seat, especially at the Bijou.

Reserved Seating

For the rare event with reserved seating, you will be prompted to select seats during checkout. Refer to the State seating chart when purchasing reserved tickets online, because balcony seats are not clearly indicated. You can also view the Bijou seating chart. If you need wheelchair, mobility, or companion seating at the State or Bijou, please contact the box office. The State balcony can only be accessed by stairs. The main floors of both theaters are accessible.

Free Popcorn Tuesdays

Enjoy a free small popcorn when attending regular movies at the State or Bijou on Tuesdays. Special events and holidays are excluded.

Fine Print

The State Theatre and Bijou by the Bay does not provide advisories on subject matter of films. Events may not have been rated. Viewer discretion is advised. 

Beyond descriptions, trailers, and reviews on our website, other sources of information on content and age-appropriateness for specific films can be found on Common Sense Media and through general internet searches. 

All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges. In some cases, passes will not be accepted, and noted on the film page or calendar.
