State Theatre’s September Movie Series

In recent years, the State Theatre has provided a venue for students, faculty, and community members to get exposure to less mainstream films throughout the semester. These are often high quality pieces that didn’t make it to the big-ticket theaters. This fall is no different, as the “State” has a schedule littered with quality films and performing acts. Below is a schedule of some of the upcoming shows and films at the State Theatre.

One film that caught my eye is The Tree of Life, an film from critically acclaimed director Terrence Malick starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn that many, myself included, may have missed in theaters. Tickets to this and all films are only six dollars for students.

Looking for an offer you can’t refuse? For those of you who won’t be attending Penn State Football Eve this Friday, The Godfather will be shown as the first installment of  the Town & Gown’s Friday film series.

And if anyone is as interested in news as we are here at Onward State, they might want to check out this acclaimed documentary, Page One: Inside the New York Times, which investigates the operations of the New York Times newsroom, showing Sept 10-14.

In addition to all of the upcoming films, dont forget to check out the Led Zeppelin Cover Band “Get the Led Out” on Sept. 16.

In the comments section, let us know what upcoming State Theatre events have you most excited!
