About the State Cinema Bookstore

Located in the historic Soundy Building (1883), adjoining the State Cinema on Elizabeth Street in the vibrant North Hobart cultural hub, the State Cinema 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. Gift Vouchers are also available.

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 from 10am seven days a week, and until late on Friday and Saturday nights, so you can pop in at your leisure for a treat anytime!
