The Sumter Opera House is a beautiful historic site with a rich past. Completed in 1895, it has served as an opera house, a music academy, a movie theatre, city offices, a meat market, barber shop, and even a jail. Still home to City Hall, many city departments and City Council chambers, the Sumter Opera House is once again presenting a performance series in an effort to contribute to downtown revitalization. The 550-seat theatre boasts excellent acoustics, a proscenium decorated with Art Deco gold-leaf, and provides the perfect intimate venue to see your favorite artists.
