Recently restored after 75 years the State Theatre in Culpeper reopened in May 2013. The 560 seat venue which is also listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places serves as a wonderful venue for the arts, plays and musical venues for the entire community and visitors to the area.

The State Theatre brought Blues to Culpeper tonight! It was such a treat to hear their upbeat blend of blues, jazz, big band and I-don't-know-what-else! Loved it! Thanks, State Theatre!

Fantastic revival of an old theatre. Many different shows available to the public for a low ticket price. Occassionally movies are playing. Wonderful attribute to the small town feel of Culpeper, VA. Highly recommend seeing a show here.
