1926 SD Theater Nears Reopening



Bookmark and Share

Downtown Sioux Falls in its heyday was home to seven movie theaters, but filmgoers since the early 1990s have been heading to the malls to sit in front of a big screen.
 
People who long for the old days can go retro next year with the long-awaited reopening of the State Theatre.
 
The circa-1926 vaudeville and silent movie house has been undergoing a slow but steady multimillion-dollar renovation over the past decade.
 
Ninety-one-year-old Sylvia Henkin says every kid who had a dime would go down to the State to see a cartoon or movie.
 
Her family donated $500,000 to the project, and the landmark will now be known as the Sylvia R. Henkin State Theatre. It's being historically preserved but will feature modern technological amenities.
