After weeks of anticipation, more than 500 votes, and some very creative suggestions, we are elated to finally announce the name of the State Theatre’s newest venture: Intermission!

Located on the corner of 13th & J, adjacent to The Jewel and the historic State Theatre, Intermission by the State will be a special place for the community to enjoy a much needed break from the day. 

Intermission will be a multi-use, show-stoppingly beautiful, community space that offers a lot of collaborative opportunities.  Our plans include state-of-the-art sound and technology, indoor/outdoor seating, a large bar, and a catering kitchen that will appeal to the best chefs and bakers in our area and provide a welcoming space to gather before and after films at the State.  

Additionally, our plans include an expansion of the iconic neon lighting to wrap around Intermission, so the whole corner will be well lit and just as magical at night as the State Theatre has been for more than 85 years! 

The future of Modesto truly looks bright.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the non-profit State Theatre, and we look forward to seeing you at Intermission soon!
