The 1950’s were a time of new inventions and new ideas, and a new medium called television was bringing the world into living rooms around the nation. It was a time of unprecedented growth in the United States and South Dakota. Sioux Falls was booming economically, culturally and socially. The film looks at the influences and fads that dominated the 50’s, from local music to television to drive-ins, and features some prominent Sioux Falls citizens who remember the era. So dig out that poodle skirt, grab your hula hoop, and join us for a journey back in time with Sioux Falls in the 50’s!
