Escape to the State

The State Cinema in North Hobart is one of my favourite places to escape.  There is nothing better than a  sneaky french film on a wintery afternoon, with a hot chocolate or glass of red wine in hand!

Afternoons are obviously a little trickier now with the little Popster, so evenings are my new time slot.  My friend Melissa and I regularly leave our little sleeping babies with our husbands, and off we go to grab a little piece of ‘culture’!

My old friend, Tim and I regularly review the movies we have seen and I think sometimes we like to think we are Margaret & David from At The Movies.  Tim lives regionally and when he is in Hobart is a dedicated State customer, seeing three movies in one hit!!

The State has recently undergone major refurbishment with a new bookshop and cafe and I am awaiting the opening of the new roof-top cinema, with bated breath!

    Homage to the State!
    I do love going there. A coffee or vino with a little French film or two, followed by a tasty morsel, a bit of book browsing and then another cinematic delight. I was made for it. And it is all ten times better if the weather is dreadful and it’s a weekday.
