State Theatre

The silver screen returned to Downtown Sioux Falls, thanks in part to a $3.5 million donation from First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard owner and philanthropist, T. Denny Sanford. The gift helped with the final phases of the restoration of the theatre including high-end projection and sound equipment and adding recliners for the audience.

Levitt at the Falls

PREMIER is proud to be one of the sponsors of Levitt at the Falls outdoor concert venue. This important addition to downtown Sioux Falls offers 50 free concerts each summer. It’s part of the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation’s mission to build community through music.

Arc of Dreams

The Arc of Dreams in downtown Sioux Falls spans the Big Sioux River representing the leap of faith dreamers and pioneers take to make their dreams possible. The stainless-steel sculpture is the length of a football field. PREMIER was proud to be one of the many that made this dream a reality.
