The Hennepin Theatre Trust manages theaters in downtown Minneapolis, including The Orpheum, The State Theater, Pantages and New Century. You can find upcoming shows and links for tickets for all these theaters at their website.
Sometimes you can find discounted tickets through our affiliate* ticket sales company, Goldstar; it's a good place to start.
Hennepin Theatre Trust Walking Tours
The trust offers walking tours of the State, Orpheum and Pantages led by experienced guides. Participants will learn about the architecture and historical facts and hear stories about the venues. The tours go beyond what patrons can see at events with access to interiors and historical backgrounds.
Tours are held on the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and the last Monday of each month at 1:00 p.m.
Children must be at least 8 years old to participate in a tour. Tickets are $10/adult and $7/students/seniors.
