This crown jewel in the historic downtown of Sioux Falls will soon return, but we need your help to build the new seats.
The State Theatre is as important to the ongoing development of Sioux Falls today as it was in 1926. The March 1, 1926 headline from The Daily Argus Leader was succinct and to the point : Opening of new State Theatre Shows Faith in City. 82 years later, a revitalized downtown Sioux Falls stands at a crossroads. History is poised to repeat itself as a group of energized community leaders and forward-thinking people from across the city, state and country are leading an effort that will help preserve the historical integrity of a city, increase our exposure to the arts and create a state-of-the-art multi-use movie theatre in the heart of South Dakota's largest city.
The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to raise $3,000 to help complete the development of 20 seats on the main floor of the renovated State Theater. To celebrate this, we're also throwing a party on May 4 at MESO in downtown Sioux Falls for everyone that supports the State. Party for the State!
