Centre Theatre

The Centre Theatre in Sydney, Montana was built by J.M. Suckstorff and opened on July 15, 1947 with “The Jolson Story”. The theatre has remained in the Suckstorff family for over sixy years, and was operated as a first run theatre until September 2008, when it was sadly closed due to illness.

This grand old theatre has been the main source of entertainment for the charming, but isolated eastern Montana city of Sydney. The platter type projector was installed in the late-1980’s and DTS Sound was added in the mid-1990’s, bringing the theatre up to modern standards. A digital projector was installed in 2013.

Centre Theater is now open again, and has a new digital projector. They show movies during the week at 6:30pm Mountain time, and have a weekend matinee. Here is the link to their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Centre-Theatre/116295405062463

This article from the Sidney Herald of June 2, 2009, at the time the Centre Theatre was sold, tells the history of the house and the Suckstorff family’s 77-year involvement in the theater business in Sidney.
