The Sumter Theatre was open in 1930. Seating was listed at 500 on two floors. The theatre was operated by Si-Non Theatres Inc. The theatre closed in the mid-1950’s. It was retrofitted for retail usage.

Any additional information on the Sumter Theatre would be appreciated.

Is there any chance that the correct address for this theater was 202 N. Broad Street? The second building north of 2nd Avenue on the east side of Broad Street looks like it might have housed a theater. It has Streamline Modern detailing and a wide entrance that has been closed with a conventional retail front. York appears to be too small to have supported two theaters.

If that building isn’t the former Sumter Theatre, then the theater has probably been demolished. There’s a modern, single-story building where 220 N. Broad probably was.
