The State Theatre in Sioux Falls is the only remaining downtown cinema.
I grew up watching movies in a gorgeous old theater like the State Theater in Sioux Falls. I have amazing memories of that place and my experiences with family and friends there. When it was destroyed by fire, a piece of my hometown's soul was lost. We are so fortunate in Sioux Falls to have the State Theater and the true gift it is to us and to future generations.

The State Theatre restoration project represents another important milestone in Sioux Falls' history and development. All great cities should remember and embrace their past, particularly a City like Sioux Falls, with its rich entertainment and cultural history. The State is clearly one our important community assets further elevating our quality of life.

I have yet to meet the person in Sioux Falls that's aware of the project that doesn't think its important.

It will be done when the people decide it's time for the State theatre to be open. So it's time for the State Theatre to be open.
