Crowds of people line the footpath and cross the street outside the State Theatre in Sydney for a nighttime screening of A Town Like Alice, circa 1956.

The State Theatre opened on 7 June 1929 and has been the home of the annual Sydney Film Festival since 1974. While the State Theatre hosts red carpet film premieres, since the 1990s it has predominantly become a venue for live music and musical theatre performances.
