The Soo Theatre is located at 1920 Dakota Avenue in South Sioux City. It was built and owned by Albert E. (Burt) Thancker and his wife Margret. It was opened on August 28, 1931 with Marie Dressler in “Politics”. It closed as a regular movie theatre on July 24, 1952 with Dan Dailey in “I Can Get It For You Wholesale” & Robert Clarke in “Casa Manana” It was then used spasmodically into the early-1960’s as a Saturday youngsters movie theatre.

The Soo Theatre had a sloping concrete floor in its auditorium and the balcony was accessible from both sides of the theatre after you entered the auditorium, half-way into the area.

Two walkways ran down the sloping floor and ended at the stage area for easy access and and exit from the seating area.

The Soo Theatre opened with Marie Dressler in “Politics” on August 28, 1931. Regular operation continued until the theatre closed for the summer on July 24, 1952 with a double feature of Dan Dailey in “I Can Get it For You Wholesale” and Robert Clark in “Casa Manana.” The theatre did not reopen that year though did have some sporadic special screenings thereafter.
