Public invited to see State Theatre restoration progress next month
Restoration progress is continuing at a historic theatre in downtown Sioux Falls.
Officials with the State Theatre will give an update to the public on Oct. 4 at 3 p.m. in the lobby located at 316 S. Phillips Ave.
In addition, the public is invited to drop by the theatre between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Oct. 5 to check out the recent progress in the auditorium during a First Friday Art & Wine Walk.
The infrastructure of the aging building has been rebuilt to preserve the structure, and features such as the lobby have been restored. Officials said an additional $5.5 million is needed to complete work on the auditorium and upper levels of the building.
To help raise money, Great Plains Sponsorships, Inc. has been hired to help
The State Theatre was built in 1926 and remains a downtown landmark.
