1926 SD Theater, Dark Since '90s, Nears Reopening

1926 SD Theater, Dark Since '90s, Nears Reopening
Sylvia Henkin

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

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.
