Limited Mobility / Elevator


The main auditorium offers designated wheelchair locations and wheelchair companion seats in the front, middle, and rear orchestra as well as the front balcony for wheelchair users who want to remain in their wheelchair. Transfer seats are also available on the aisle in the front, middle, and rear orchestra for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility who wish to transfer to a theater seat. Adjacent companion seats are also available for purchase. Wheelchair and corresponding companion seating is available on a first ordered, first served basis throughout the house.

Orchestra level seating is accessible to patrons with limited mobility. The Balcony, Studio, VIP Lounge, and second floor restrooms are accessible via an elevator. Please note: Balcony seating, with the exception of designated wheelchair spaces and immediately adjacent companion seats, require patrons to climb steps. If you have any questions about accessible seating, please contact Guest Services before placing your order.

Staff can assist you from the front door of the theater to your seats. A courtesy wheelchair is available by request at the Concierge Desk in the main lobby.

It is prohibited for anyone, other than those requiring wheelchair spaces or seats for their companions to use wheelchair accessible locations unless the area has been released for general seating. Those purchasing a wheelchair accessible space may purchase up to three (3) companion seats located near the wheelchair space; any additional seats must be purchased in the regular seating areas. This policy ensures that we are able to accommodate all available and accessible wheelchair spaces in our theater.

Accessible seating areas are available on a first come first served basis and State Theatre cannot guarantee availability of these sections once these areas have been filled or re-designated as non-ADA seating based on ADA guidelines.


A newly installed elevator provides access from the street to the main lobby, second floor loge, Donor Lounge, and Studio. Not all seating areas are accessible via the elevator.


Accessible restrooms are available on both the first floor and second floor.

The WaveCAST app provides an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface and is available for either iOS or Android devices. We’ll ask for a driver’s license or credit card as a deposit for headset usage.
