Historic State Theater Complex

209 W Dixie Ave, Elizabethtown, KY
Max Capacity: 175 people
Opening as a movie house in 1942, the State Theater was the hub of social activity in Hardin County for 40 years. After showing its final film, "E.T.", in 1982, the building languished as an empty eyesore for nearly 20 years. However, because Elizabethtown and Hardin County is a community that cares, the State Theater has been fully restored to reflect its original 1942 construction but with modern amenities. The State Theater is now host to not only classic movies, but live concerts, comedy shows, theatrical productions and more. The Historic State Theater Complex is the perfect place to host your business meeting, dinner, annual event, wedding reception, anniversary party, birthday party or club event. Two venues are currently available for rent. They are the WesBanco Gallery and the Historic State Theater. Depending on the type of event, the WesBanco Gallery can seat up to 175 in a banquet style setting. It is adjoined by a foyer and a full kitchen. The Historic State Theater seats 600 people at maximum capacity. Please contact our administrative offices about rates and to see if your date is available.
