The Southern Theater

On March 2, 2000, the Southern Theater quietly celebrated the 90th anniversary of its opening. Built in 1910 as a cultural center and legitimate theater for the burgeoning Scandinavian community centered around Cedar Avenue (“Snoose Boulevard”), the Southern has had a rich and colorful past prior to re-establishing itself as a center for contemporary performing arts over the past quarter-century. The Southern Theater was the first venue to present an installment of the Wordless Music series outside of New York City.
