STATE BOOKSTORE, State Cinema Hobart
Welcome to the State Bookstore
An exciting new chapter in the State Cinema development began on April 5th 2012, with the long-awaited State Bookstore officially opening its doors to the public.
Adjoining the State Cinema on Elizabeth Street in the vibrant North Hobart cultural hub, the State Bookstore is a boutique store selling fine books, paper, stationery and gifts. We specialise in non-fiction, travel, art, fashion, architecture, and hand-selected fiction titles along with a wide range of stationery items including LAMY pens and Moleskine notebooks.
Originally located in the historic Soundy Building (1883), and now positioned in a new expanded store adjoining the cinema on Elizabeth Street in the vibrant North Hobart cultural hub, the State Bookstore is a boutique store, selling a wide range of genres but specialising in art, architecture, travel, biography and of course film!
With the State Cinema, Bookstore and Café Bar all on the one premises, you can now enjoy a fine film, coffee or glass of wine, and take home your next great read all in one visit. We’re open seven days a week and open until late on Friday and Saturday nights, so you can pop in at your leisure for a treat anytime!
