South Dakota Web Roundup

Apr 27, 2012

Viborg's Lund Theater, South Dakota's oldest continuously operating movie theater, is in danger of closing. This photo was taken by Bernie Hunhoff in 2005.

The Dakota Theatre here in Yankton hasn’t screened movies since I was a girl, in the early 1980s. Tonight and Saturday, they’re making a brief return to the world of cinema, with screenings of Dams of 2011, a film about last year’s Missouri River flooding. 

The Lunafest Film Festival, a traveling film festival of short films by and about women, is coming to Custer on Saturday. Proceeds benefit the Custer Storehouse and breast cancer awareness.

Viborg is having a town hall meeting on Sunday, April 29 to get input from the community on saving South Dakota’s oldest continuously operating movie theater, the Lund. 

The Black Hills Film Festival kicks off on Tuesday in Hill City. Sixty films will be shown — six of them with South Dakota connections

Do you want to be in pictures? Napoleon Dynamite producer and Edgemont native Sean Covel will be holding a casting call on Saturday and Sunday at the film festival. Chad Coppess has the details

Cinema Falls is a Sioux Falls based group dedicated to screening independent and foreign films that might not otherwise be shown in South Dakota. To find out about upcoming screenings, like them on Facebook. The next film in their lineup is The Girls in the Band, stories of female musicians in the 1930s. Watch for it May 2nd at Augustana College.
