State Theatre

Wheelchair Access – The main entrance is accessible.

Parking – Accessible parking is available on Front Street and in the parking lot behind Chase Bank across the street from the State. The parking deck on Front Street also has accessible parking spaces and an elevator.

Seating – Wheelchair accessible seating is available on either side of the theater, along with companion seating. Companion seating is available, ask the house manager or ushers for assistance.

Restroom – The accessible bathroom is on the main floor. It is a unisex bathroom.

Assistive Hearing Devices – Infrared hearing assistive technology is available for the hard of hearing. Headsets are available, but we encourage patrons to bring their own headsets.

Also – A Contacta InfoLoop induction loop system has been donated to the Traverse City State Theater by Dr. Sandra Leahy and Dr. Kathleen Sawhill of Hearing Solutions of Northwest Michigan.

This loop system provides hearing accessibility for people with hearing impairment in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995. It is the most advanced and versatile range of loop systems available and it has been donated to promote better hearing and hearing accessibility.

People with hearing aids that are equipped with a telecoil (telephone program/switch) are able to listen to the movie (or presentation) using their hearing aid in its telephone program. The audio signal of the movie will be transmitted directly from the theaters sound system to the person s hearing aid. The loop system significantly reduces background noise, making listening clearer and easier. Note that at this time the system is only available on the main floor (not the balcony). The system also includes four portable headsets for people who are hearing impaired and do not have hearing aids equipped with a telecoil. We hope this will make you movie going experience more pleasurable.
